    Well... If you're trying to find something that can do similar things to visual basic, don't look here. PHP is nothing like VB.
    Code-wise, it's more like C. But in terms of what it can do...

    PHP is used to execute actions server-side (on the server computer, not the client) before the client views a website. It can do simple things like email using a website form, login scripts, and etc... It can also do very complex things like a site management code and database information storage.

    Visual Basic is pretty, well, basic even compared to PHP. I don't know if PHP is even what you'd want to get into, seeing as it only does things before the page loads, nothing dynamic.
