If you're just starting out, you would be better served by Webtrees. Webtrees was cloned from PhpGedView over 3 years ago, and has been updated regularly since then. PhpGedView has remained stagnant in all that time, with only a few updates and bug fixes.
The user community for Webtrees is a LOT more active.
