PHP On Symbian

If you google for "PHP Symbian" you will find a very old post written in 2004 at circle.ch pointing to an older php groups post that I have written earlier in 2003. I thought that the story of PHP and Symbian have been forgotten since that time, but !

After Nokia effort to make mobile web server available for S60, now it seems that PHP also have been successfuly ported to run on S60 platform.

According to a forum post, the PAMP stack will be demonstrated this Thursday and Friday in Las Vegas during the CCNC conference. And here PAMP stands for Personal Apache, MySQL, PHP.

Since it's experimental project, the memory usage is still very high according to the forum post also, but we will know more when the project will be officially released for public.

In addition of PHP itself, there will be PHP extension modules that provide access to the core functionality of the phone. This will be very useful to create phone specific applications in PHP, the same way people used to do it before using Python for Symbians.

Why we had to wait until 2008 to hear about PHP for mobile phones ?

PAMP stands for Personal Apache, MySQL, PHP, so yes, the full LAMP stack will be made available for S60 smart phones. In addition, there will be PHP extension modules that provide access to the core functionality of the phone. And on top of PAMP you can basically install any LAMP based content management system.
