PHP VirtualBox VM has been refreshed
While I was recently on summer vacation (yes, it is summer in half the world), the VirtualBox VM for PHP was refreshed to a more recent Zend Server/Oracle Linux/Oracle Database XE stack.
I just pulled the VM down, imported it and had it booting and serving PHP pages in a very few minutes. VirtualBox really is marvelous. There is a link to download the VM near the foot of the Oracle Technology Network Developer VM page.
