Josh Adell's Blog: PHP Fog Quickstart
Josh Adell has posted a quick start guide to getting your application up and running on the PHPFog PHP platform as a service offering.Being it was Christmas and all, I decided to give myself a present and sign up.

Facilitating Development Environment Consistency

Facilitating Development Environment Consistency
Every developer is different, but your team's development environment does not have to be. A modern web app uses many different technologies. Common dependencies for a functioning web development environment include PHP and its necessary extensions, a web server, a database, testing frameworks, and other apps and services. The classic approach to assist a team of developers is to deploy a server and install all of the necessary packages one would need for development. This methodology provides a...

Stefan Koopmanschap has written up an article on the Leaseweblabs.com blog about migrating a Symfony 1 application to Symfony2 in a (slightly) less painful way that making the move all at once.It is much easier to do a gradual migration. Start with one part of your application, and bit by bit migrate your logic and application. The traditional way of doing such migrations is to create a new project and have parallel development on the old and the new version of the application. The problem with this,...

Joshua Thijssen's Blog: php 5.4 + htrouter: Your personal Apache 2.2 compatible server
Joshua Thijssen has a new post to his blog today about a feature of the upcoming PHP 5.4 release, the built-in web server, and a handy way to reproduce .htaccess functionality with the help of a simple PHP script - htrouter.The problem with the new PHP 5.4 internal web-server is that it isn't Apache. Thus it does not know anything about .htaccess. Even when you have defined your .htaccess to do authentication, the internal PHP web-server will ignore it, while in production, the authentication will be...

Load balancing for PHP and MySQL

Load balancing for PHP and MySQL
A single MySQL server is a single point of failure. A single MySQL server can only be scaled vertically by increasing hardware size, which has its limits. That's two good reasons to migrate from a single MySQL server to a cluster of MySQL servers. However, in cloudy white christmas times, few appreciate the extra work that using a cluster causes. For example, MySQL connections must be load balanced. Please, find a comparison of different load balancing architectures in the short presentation. Choose the...

Midgard2 PHPCR provider hits 1.0

Midgard2 PHPCR provider hits 1.0
I'm happy to announce that we were able to release the first stable version of the Midgard2 PHPCR provider yesterday.Simply put, PHPCR is the future of Midgard's PHP API. Instead of having our own repository APIs, we follow the well-documented and tested PHP Content Repository specification. This allows much better compatibility with other projects, and for example the possibility to choose whether to store contents in Midgard2 or Apache Jackrabbit on per-deployment basis. This obviously doesn't mean...
