More praise... But you deserve it!
I thought writing a database app i.e. guestbook would be an immense job... But thanks to you guys, and mysql it's up and running after three (3) hours...
Now on to make a store management system...
Thanks a LOT!
I am really appreciate your work
Great language for web! Very simple to use, have all that every web programmer may need.
a little praise ;)
Just wanted to drop a line to say thanks for this fine language. I don't care what other people may say, PHP is by far the best language I've ever used to do web backend, bar none.

I'm sure this comment is way too late, but php.he.net is never down when I need an alternative. I try to use it to keep some of the load off php.net most of the time anyway since it's the same thing. I just go to php.net when I need to look at the comments in the docs.
Re: Good news...
Indeed - we currently use Jservlets and JSP's on OAS/NT and have also ported our apps to Apache/Apache JServ on RedHat, but since I first looked at PHP last weekend, I have installed MySQL, PHP4 and Apache with PHP module, and it rocks! PHP is all so simple for traditonal programmers like me (I have always found Java to be a pain in the butt) - it just gets to the point - as if (oo do ya think?) it was designed by people who were coding real world apps, not dreaming up some conceptually and aesthetically pleasing language :)
I also grabbed an excellent PHP MySQL client "phpMyAdmin" which is also excellent (I refuse to type in insert queries that have more construct than data for one record inserts!)
I couldn't comment on the speed of Zend as 4 is the first version of PHP I have ever used, but performance on my aging test server is good using the MySQL back end for data.
More importantly - I like the way it is put together - it all seems very sane.

Of course PHP4b3 is buggy... it's a beta. The current version (4.0.4pl1) is vastly improved.
shell scripting with php
There is an article about how to do this (www.phpbuilder.com/col...) at PHP Builder (www.phpbuilder.com (www.phpbuilder.com/)) which explains the full details of using php for shell scripting, but basically you need to compile the CGI version and use that as the interpreter. You will need to add a bang-path to the script as well as still using the php start and end tags. Full details are in the article over there, so I won't post them all here :)
I can't seem to get through to php.net right now either, although I was able to get though a few hours ago. If anyone has a mirror carrying 4.0rc1, I'm working on doing an upgrade and need it.
Mirrors, anyone? or a cmdline PHP interpreter?
Does anyone know of any mirrors of the distributions? www.php.net seems to be kind of down..
And more to the point, where do I get a command-line interpreter of PHP scripts?
I've been using b3 for quite a while right now; I use it
because of SquirrelMail which requires it.
I found a that it hogs Apache (1.3.11) down
so that it takes ALL available memory & CPU time.
Also it seems not stable when you get errors like
"undentified xxxx in xx line xx" but after reloading
I suggest stick with php3, when you don't need php4
If PHP 4 is as fast as Zend promises, I think Microsoft and ASP will have trouble...
For the moment, in my company (babel) we use ASP on NT/IIS. But three days ago, my boss had a look at PHP. He was for sure impressed because now I've to develop a generic database interface in PHP that build code in PHP or ASP. If it's so fast, I'm sure we will see more and more PHP sites . It will help to get the rid of M$ in the Web server market...
Have a nice day...
