The creator of PHP Rasmus Lerdorf once mentioned at the Euro Apache conference in 2000 that he created PHP simply to make his life easier when developing web applications were he worked. I'm sure he didn't envisage it would ever be quite as popular as it is today. His short article 'Do You PHP?' notes PHP's current usage, advice for architects and its future within the web development community.
He also mentions that it is all to easy to write messy code in Php :)
