PHP is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn. PHP runs on many different platforms and can be used as a standalone executable or as a module under a variety of Web servers. It has excellent support for databases, XML, LDAP, IMAP, Java, various Internet protocols, and general data manipulation, and is extensible via its powerful API. It is actively developed and supported by a talented and energetic international team. Numerous Open Source and commercial PHP-based application packages are available.
PEAR::Services_Weather searches for given locations and retrieves current weather data and forecasts (depending on the used service). GlobalWeather from CapeScience, Weather XML from EJSE (US only), a XOAP service from Weather.com, and METAR/TAF from NOAA are supported. Further services will be included if they become available, have a usable API, and are properly documented.
PHP_Application is a platform for the development of event-driven applications in which two mechanisms of distribution of events for two levels of abstraction accordingly are realized. The first level are objects and their events; the second, the application and its events. The mechanism of distribution of events of the applications supports distribution of the directed and broadcasting events, and also provides synchronous or asynchronous processing events. The structure of the application represents a hierarchy of objects with various levels of abstraction. Functionality of the application is completely defined by a set of the objects included in the application and interaction between them, i.e. a stream of events. The structure of the application allows you to operate a stream of events extending downwards on hierarchy of objects.

You only need to upload the files to your Web server and set the relevant TLDs. The script is written in PHP using object oriented design. The frontend uses CSS, so changing the style is very simple.
