Still, I would strongly advise not using it for production websites without further testing.
I have covered some of the bases with security, but other issues may exist.

I'll be skipping explanations of some of the very basic programming stuff, so if at any point you feel lost, checkout the course Diving into PHP and give yourself a crash-course in PHP.
