<?php
function password($length){
$alphabetical = range('A','Z');
$numeric =  range('0','9');
$special = array('/','\\',':',';','!','@','#','$','%','^','*','(',')','_','+','=','|','{','}','[',']','"',"'",'<','>',',','?','~','`','&',' ','.');
$merged_password = array_merge($alphabetical,$numeric,$special);
$final_password = " ";
for($i=$length;$i>0;$i--)
{
$keys = array_rand($merged_password);
$final_password  .= $merged_password [$keys];
}
 return $final_password;
}
//call function 
echo password(12);
?>

In the above snippet we use alphabetical character, numeric and special character to generate strong password. Then array_merge() function is used to merge all the three array shown above.
Now merged array is passed in array_rand() function to get all keys in loop. Finally we get password value stored in $merged_password stored on each key. Each password value is stored in $final_password variable one by one. To generate random strong password just call function password($length) and pass the length of password in function. That’s it.
