You may want to take a look at this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R_(programming_language)

From the looks of it, R is not suited to web development. You will find it much easier to develop in PHP since it is designed for web development and servers support it - I doubt you'll find any servers that support R without paying lots to have it set up.

Edit: R is suited to statistics, but while it may be slightly more work to program in PHP, to get servers/hosting and for someone else to maintain/update later, PHP would be much friendlier.
