Because PHP has no focus.

It doesn't excel in any aspect of a programming language.

It's not the fastest, the safest, the more consistent, the easier to learn, the more expressive, the more syntactic sugary, the most concise, the more human, the less human, the more concurrent. It's just there.

When someone programs in PHP, it's almost like "I started with it when I was beggining and well, I still code on it and that's all". You simply don't have any good reason to pick PHP from languages that we have available on the present.

PS: I don't wanna offend anyone tho, just wanna answer the question.

I guess PHP focus is in the frameworks. There are a lot very easily frameworks that solve so many things in PHP than in other languages is not as standardized and/or easy to use.
