Understanding and Managing the PHP Environment on IBM i
Presented by Erwin Early, Sr. Solutions Consultant, Zend, of Perforce


Think PHP is hard? Think again! In this session we will take a look at the installation of PHP and show how in one easy step we can have a PHP complete with database driver and ILE integration. We will even show demo scripts (perhaps live!!) to prove the point. After the installation we will take a look at various functions and features of the Zend Server application server for managing the PHP application environment. The session will explore the structure of how the PHP engine runs on the platform including a description of the subsystem employed and some basic troubleshooting. The session will also take a look at the 5250-based management system (zsmenu) for managing the configuration files, jobs, and subsystems, as well as the Zend Server Web GUI for working with various features including server configuration management, monitoring, and root cause analysis. We will also take a look at the community PHP, what it brings to the IBM i community, and how it differs from the solution stack delivered with Zend Server
