Naturally, if you're going to serve up Web pages, you need a Web server. As long as the Web server supports PHP 4.0 or later, you're good. In this chapter we cover two platforms: Apache on Linux, and Internet Information Services for Windows. Apache and IIS are by far the most widely used Web-server software packages on the Internet, with a combined market share of over 88 percent (according to a January 2004 Netcraft survey). For more information on other Web servers that support PHP, consult the PHP documentation at www.php.net.
