Thinking about PHP

Feb 23, 2004

I just discovered that A List Apart also have server-side articles, mostly about PHP it seems. Their articles are typically of very high quality and can save a lot of work and experimentation, at least with CSS, don't know about their PHP stuff yet, but I'll go and investigate, as I'm now pretty sure that I'll rewrite the system generating my webpages from m4(1), make(1) and perl to PHP. Of course the pages will only be preprocessed by PHP, not run serverside.

I am pondering moving my weblog to my home server and rewrite it as a PHP web-application backed by a database. It would require more hardware though, I'm not going to run something like that on a machine with any important stuff on, so it'll be a while…
