That still doesn't make it a good language, or one that has the proper features a modern language should.
Even Java has a bunch of build and dependency management tools.
Because. It. Freaking. Needs. That.
PHP doesn't. It's a scripting language, not a compiled one.
Haven't heard of anyone using PHP for a new application or project in years, tbh.
Mostly it is Java, C#, Golang, Python and Node.js.
