Details on our PHP installations, as well as links to PHP resources.
PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that works well with MySQL, is especially suited for Web development, and can be easily embedded into HTML. In short, it is an easy to use tool to add logic and functionality to your website.
We currently offer PHP version 5.2.17 with the following options: 'enable-versioning' 'enable-track-vars' 'with-gd' 'with-jpeg' 'with-sablot' 'with-expat' 'with-mcrypt' 'with-png' 'with-zlib' 'with-ttf' 'with-freetype' 'with-curl'. If you need a feature added to PHP, just let us know and we will do our best to compile it in for you.
We also offer PHP version 5.3 within virtual containers on our servers. Effectively, this is a reserved section of our hosting network in which we offer later versions of PHP and other features not readily available within the extant hosting setup. In order to access it, your site simply needs to be migrated into the virtual containers, which we will do for you at no additional cost. Just contact us to request the migration.

There are many PHP resources on the web, the ones listed below are all excellent starting places:
To keep our MySQL server (mysql.serve.com) from being overrun with unused connections, we have disabled the mysql_pconnect() function. mysql_pconnect() does not close it's database connection when the PHP script has closed, and needlessly strains our MySQL server. If you want to connect to our MySQL server, please use the mysql_connect() function, it works perfectly.
