PHP has come a long long way from the terribly coded scripts of the 2000s. I would say its perfect for a beginner if you need server-side logic. The only recommendation I say, is stick to Object Oriented programming and use strict types, try to steer clear of the dynamic sides of the language. PHPStan is a great tool to help with finding typing issues and has some rulesets available on GitHub for strict typing.
