    Do you *have* to use PHP?

    Laravel is worth a look although I'd imagine any of the php frameworks would work for you.

    A database and encryption is very vague indeed.

    Laravel is a good PHP framework.

    Don't mind people who have issues with PHP ;)
    As others have mentioned, Laravel is a good choice. Check out Laracasts if you're interested - laracasts.com

    I've used CakePHP and Yii. Yii seemed pretty good. Especially with the Bootstrap plugin. You could have a decent-looking, functioning web-app up in a few hours.

    Although as the others said, PHP is a load of arse and I'd avoid investing time into it if I could.

    thanks everyone for the suggestions please keep them coming.

    Another vote for Laravel.

    If you're hosting the project on your own server and not using a shared hosting service I'd suggest checking out HHVM, it provides quite a performance increase over a regular PHP install.

    Ruby,Python,Java or C# for a start.

    If you're already familiar with PHP and you have a specific project in mind stick with PHP unless you have a very good reason not to.

    If you're looking to start a career in development and you'd like to broaden your range of skills, look around at other languages.

    PHP has been around a long time and is used by an enormous percentage of websites. Chances are if you're trying to do something in PHP, somebody, somewhere has already done it and you'll probably find example code/tutorials etc.

    As you don't know what it is the OP is trying to build, and you don't know the OPs background. On what basis can you say learning a new language from scratch is a better option?

    Not singling you out giranmino, that question goes to everyone throwing out random languages.

    Since the OP doesn't know the actual name of the framework, or how to use their Caps Lock, I think their opinion can be safely discarded. :)

    I don't understand the hate for PHP, has it become unfashionable? It does seem to be a fashion thing, given the lack of supporting evidence.

    Most of which will be of appalling quality and probably subject to basic security flaws such as sql injection.

    You're right, he should probably think about using a framework. Ohhh wait. :D
