The simple explanation is that PHP is a free Open Source server-side programming language that provides extreme functionality and dynamic control over data, databases, files, and servers. PHP is like the glue that binds browsers, servers, databases and unexpected variables into a speedy responsive enironment for your users. PHP is available on all hosting platforms, so it's readily available anywhere. PHP is portable across multiple platforms and environments.
What makes Secure PHP different is the developer who does the PHP development. It doesn't take long to find a PHP developer. You can hire a PHP developer in India, China or the United States. There are some essential criteria for picking which PHP developer you hire.

PHP developers who lack security essentials will not delcare themselves as "insecure" or advise you of their failings. Some developers don't stay up-to-date on the PHP programming language and write deprecated code (out of date), which leads to security vulnerabilities and dysfunction.

Well, there's a process to resurrecting a hacked website, so we follow a methodology. It's important that you make backups of your website and databases on a recurring schedule. Restore your most recent backup IF and ONLY IF you know that backup doesn't contain compromised code or executables. If you need time to figure things out, get your website and database shutdown before they cause more damage. Download the codebase and evaluate it to discover what happened, which helps identify the point of entry, which is where you need to make changes. You can either start fresh and create a new secure PHP web application, or you can perform a Code Review and fix whatever is wrong.
A code review is an intense code-level evaluation to discover security vulnerabilities, deprecated code, and invalid or malfunctioning systems. Code reviews may extend into your database, onto your server and network, depending on the skill level of the reviewer and how much freedom you give the reviewer.
The cost of a code review is based on the number of lines of code being reviewed, how complex the functions are, how well the code was written, and how in-depth you want the review to be. You may opt for a low-level or lightweight review to get a sense of what quality your code is, then decide to either perform a more intense code review, else abandon the code and redirect funds into new development. Code reviews do not include new development or fixing what's broken, just evaluating in detail what's wrong with your code and advising on how to proceed.
After performing a code review, assuming you find problems, you can choose to fix what's wrong or start over. If nothing is wrong, obviously, you go back to mnanaging your business. Sometimes fixing what's wrong takes as much time and money as it does to develop from scratch and make general improvements. A code review should provide enough detailed feedback to help you make an educated decision about which route to take. It's worth getting a quote for both options and weighing the advantages of each.
