PHP implementation

PHP scripts
We are looking at implementing PHP to develop applications - we are not sure where to begin - what resources will we need on iSeries - does anyone have a pseudo checklist of requirements for iSeries setup - any suggestions on what type of training would be required to efficiently use PHP?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

While PHP is by no means my area of expertise, I did do a little searching for you and found a pretty good website for an overall gist PHP setup and utilization. The website is Oxxus and seems to provide some pretty good information. As far as using with an iSeries server, it sounds like you are already on the right track. I would also suggest checking out books such as Learning MySQL, Javascript and PHP. Again, I am not the expert on web design or application programming but in my line of work, I have used O’Rilley publishing for numerous things and they always seem to be very comprehensive and accurate.

    Tom - thanks for the info - just a couple more questions..... Will we need to download both links? Getting started with PHP is easy: Register to gain access to Zend support for Zend Server Community Edition. Starting in April 2010 Zend Server Community Edition, the PHP runtime, is preloaded with IBM i 7.1, 6.1 and 5.4. Register and download Zend Studio for IBM i, Zend’s advanced development environment for PHP applications. Would i also need to download the following? Zend is "The PHP Company". They provide products, support, education, and services for PHP application development and deployment. Zend Server Community Edition for IBM i is a complete PHP runtime environment that includes a toolkit that enables easy access to IBM i applications and data.Zend Server for IBM i also contains a complete PHP runtime environment, but additionally provides performance optimization, monitoring, root cause analysis, and more. It includes bridges to both 5250 and Java applications.Zend Studio for IBM i is a professional grade IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for developing PHP applications.
