My recommendation is to utilize the existing skills you have; this
echoes Fergus's comment. However, PHP is very popular and if you have
the luxury of being able to learn a new language, choosing PHP is not
like choosing an esoteric language that someone will struggle to
maintain when you move on.

PHP will certainly help you get a working website up quickly. Oracle
can easily be accessed in PHP to do the things you describe.
Discussion of frameworks and abstraction layers is just a way to make
you aware of their place and to ensure the application is architected
to suit your current & future requirements.
