is there a future for php and its developers?

And a very bright one.
I am a C++ programmer as well (and know Python, Java, Lisp, ...) and I am aware that there are a lot of "experts" who regard PHP as a horrible language.
Yes, 10 years ago - 5 years ago even - the average PHP code was horrible!
But take a look at the clean code that Yii has. Look at the beauty and elegance of modern PHP frameworks and compare that to what people are doing in .NET and Java.
Yes, PHP has baggage and quirky features, a lot of inconsistent functions, but that is a price you have to pay for backwards compatibility..
I personally like it.
Look at the rate at which PHP is progressing and you'll see that it is far from dead.
PHP 7 is on the horizon now.
I love PHP!
You can write beautiful code with it.
You can use dependency injection, anonymous functions, ...
I like that it is a bit.. DIRTY!

PHP is the best language definitely with a very good future.Java is preferred just because it is highly secure, but it never means that PHP has no future.Moreover, PHP is an open source language while ASP.net is not.And definitely as a server side language for websites PHP is the most used one.

The problem of PHP is not the PHP is the programmers. PHP is very to easy to learn, because of it programmers feel free to do anything.

If you're talking purely about the language then yes, it's a bit of a mess. It's all fairly inconsistent and a bit all over the place. Unfortunately for backward compatibility issues, that's going to always remain the case. The language itself is going to annoy some purists, and you'll often hear it cop a bit of flack from Java developers as a result. What's more, earlier versions had very rudimentary OO support, and the language fell pretty short as a result. However, these days OO support is up there with Java.
Personally I hope future releases are more focused on performance rather than introducing new language paradigms. Once PHP7 is a bit more matured, it'd be great if the language was forked, cleaned up a little and released as something else, and we wouldn't be so heavily reliant on language constructs that were introduced ad hoc some 15 years ago.

Why interpret anything over and over, why creating the whole app from start every request?
It will happen, sooner or later.
