One advantage I can think of is that PHP has both procedure programming language and OOP language features. This mainly attributes to its evolution along the way. This means that programmers from different programming language background can pick up this language within short period of time.
Its disadvantage also comes from its ample language features. Some libraries written by a programmer from a procedure programming langauge may be difficult for programmers with an OOP background to maintain.

"Hard to maintain since it is not very modular."
Sorry, this is not true. You can make it as modular as you want. It has full OOP capabilities and you can divide your project into multiple files and directories.
You can make a hard-to-maintain app in any language.
