Have you considered setting up a PHP 5 on your Linux™ server, but not had the time to learn how? This article will help guide you through the installation of a PHP 5 environment using the industry's first integrated PHP environment that includes the IBM® Cloudscape™ database server. Installation and configuration is greatly simplified using Zend Core for IBM compared to setting up a complete development and deployment environment from scratch. Zend Core for IBM also provides commonly used PHP extensions and DB2® client libraries to get you connected to your DB2 Universal Database™ (UDB) servers. Support for Zend Core is available from Zend Technologies, a leading provider of PHP products and services, but it is a free download and a time saver for any PHP developer who wants to build web applications for IBM Cloudscape or DB2 UDB.
