Zend Server includes a tested and certified version of PHP and a set of tools to set up and optimize your environment.
These tools are presented in an improved Administration Interface designed to provide all the tools and technology necessary to support PHP environments.
Special attention has been given to creating consistency across operating systems to ensure interoperability and facilitate the needs of diverse environments that use Linux, and Windows.
The PHP versions are PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.3, which have been tested and optimized for development use. Commonly used extensions and Zend Framework are included with the PHP to provide a one-stop shop for all the resources that developers need to create PHP Web applications.
A complementary set of tools is provided with Zend Server to optimize and extend your PHP capabilities. The tools included in Zend Server are described in detail in the Components Section. Instructions on how to work with each component are provided in the Tasks section, where each possible task is described in detail from start to end.
