The code is stored in plaintext formatted text (. Php) files. It's not compiled or encrypted, so anyone who compromises your machine gets your source code. And if they have the source code then they also have the login details for the database and can run queries like drop, delete, insert or select. Even asp gets compiled before it is deployed. Most people who use php are intermediate developers who know very little about server security.

Then there's WordPress. Most php sites run WordPress. WordPress is a favourite for people with no server skills or programming skills. That means they don't know how to secure it properly. It's so widely used that any vulnerabilities that get discovered are published and exploited. Most developers have no idea what the code on their WordPress site is actually doing. Once again WordPress stores database login details in the plaintext wp-config.php file and has a very unsecure installation process. By default the installer is runnable without a password as long as the wp-config.php is configured and the database (without any tables) is set up. If you're not quick enough someone will run the installer for you and install some nice file management tools to read more files on your system. Then there is user enumeration and various other issues.

Running your database on the same machine as your Web facing code, or a directly web facing machine in general is bad practice. The web facing machine should not have the database on it.
