PHP3 and PHP4

PHP is a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP is similar to Microsoft's ASP (Active Server Pages). It is a powerful development tool which allows for faster development of dynamic content with less programming. As with CGI, Opt2.net does NOT provide development support for PHP. You can find extensive documention on the PHP web site, and can learn more about PHP at www.php.net

Conventions and Opt2.net-specific information
  • Opt2.net currently has both PHP version 3.0.12. and 4.0.2
  • The "CGI redirect" version of PHP is installed.
  • PHP files should end with the extension .php3 or .php4 to use the appropriate version of PHP
  • PHP files should be placed with your web documents; not in your /cgi-bin directory.
  • GIF creation via PHP is not supported or permitted.
  • A list of PHP variables can be obtained from the output of phpinfo (not an opt2.net site).
PHP can also be used with a Mysql database to create advanced, dynamic web pages. To find out more, please consult the PHP site and Mysql documentation.
