PHP:

One thing that PHP has is a market of excellent packaged end-user
oriented software for websites: vBulletin, oscommerce, x-cart,
pMachine, ez-Publish, gallery, phpBB and php-nuke, plus other
hosting control panel favorites.

You can rewrite, reuse, and repurpose the code easily
PHP can run with less RAM than Java/J2EE (PHP runs on a server
with 256MB of ram). However, if there's an existing J2EE infrastructure,
adding servlets is easy and is very efficient. You don't need an IDE to program it ...
PHP is open source, runs on Unix and Windows servers.


JSP:

JSP (Java Server Pages) is not widely supported by web hosting
companies.
Java/JSP has a steeper learning curve than PHP.
For JSP you have to own a server with 2-4GB+ memory, which is will
use entirely.

I think the fact that it is not widely support by hosting companies are the main things. If they were it may be more popular. PHP is very powerful and they update it a lot. It is also support by almost all hosting companies and as many modules etc.

Cant really go with PHP. Its easy :)

I think that Denis basically cover why JSP isn't as popular as PHP.

Another reason why is possibly because PHP is Open Source and JSP isn't (correct me if I'm wrong...I've never really tried JSP)

PHP is more stable, PHP is easier, and JSP hosting is expensive :)

It's simple. PHP can post into databases and do really fancy stuff.

JSP needs a lot of knowledge and involves a lot more code for a lot less action. Plus you can't pull things from a database or add anything to one. It's just a really big pain.

JSP Hosting as mentioned above is very expensive, and PHP and JSP can basically do the same thing...so why not go for the cheaper and most used...and easier to learn one? ;)
