How secure is PHP ?

Hi everyone,

I've been tasked with creating a learning management system for my
University. Given that we're only handling a few handred students, I'd
typically want to create it using linux/apache/mysql/php.

However, when browsing the web, I found an article which said that "it
requires an expert to lockdown php" (Sorry, but I can't quite recall
the URL).

While I am not a novice, I am defintely not an expert either -
expecially on security issues.

So, I'd like to ask the members of this list - how difficult is it to
secure php ? Do you really need a security "expert" to do this ?

P.S. The few hundred students mentioned above are IT students ;-)
