History and background

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 22 April 2004
PHP had its roots 10 years ago, and it seems that students are already studying its origins, and the reasons behind why it was written, as a part of computer history.  Makes me feel very old! Here are some useful links.

Rasmus Lerdorf / Zend hall of Fame / history of PHP
Brief history and how that lead to PHP4's structure
Black Bean's history of PHP
Hitchhiker's Guide to PHP / Do you PHP - article by Rasmus Lerdorf
