In recent times, where every now and new versions and new technologies are becoming a trend. Choosing the right technology and programming frameworks have become a challenge. Two potential names, which have emerged as a leader -Ruby On Rails and PHP.
Rails is an amazing web-based framework for Ruby. While PHP is an adept programming language, which has various frameworks. But both platforms are different. Let's see how: http://bit.ly/2Yzr2l8
As a developer it is best to choose a language to solve the problem at hand, In my opinion, choose PHP over Ruby on Rails purely on the basis of support(If your a beginner), Consider that the major CMS platforms are written in PHP which will give you an idea in terms of scalability . Ruby on Rails was developed with the idea of overcoming the challenges faced in languages such as PHP however being fairly new it is still difficult to compare them head to head. Remember PHP has alot of pre-build environments allowing a programmer at any level to adapt with a low learning curve. Hope this helps
