Is PHP going to be safe enough?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just a question.  Shortly, I will be setting up a national website with paying members for services rendered.  The members will have their own login/password and membership area.

Im trying to decide between PHP and ASP.  I know how to program PHP/MySQL so I wanna stick to this.  Is this going to be safe enough on the web to avoid hackers etc, or is ASP safer?

Thanks for your help,

PHP is safe. However its down to the programmer to make the system as hack prof as possible. Such as performing proper input validation. For example if you are expecting a numerical value use is_numeric to chekc it is numeric or type cast etc, This is where alot of sites fail on and the reason why most sites get hacked.
