PHP was never a lost cause and I do not believe it will ever be.

I never understood the random hatred towards PHP, mostly from developers sitting on high horses, judging on the OOP part or whatever.

PHP is always evolving, which is the key of its success, and the key of its popularity. The same thing is happening with JavaScript.

Just remember, PHP is not general purpose language, it is just for web development, and it does a great job at it.

I agree but to correct things, PHP is indeed a General-purpose language. It's the best for web for sure, but it can do more than that.
