Would installing PHP interfere with anything?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have been trying to get our web/IT department to install PHP but they said were afraid it might cause something bad to happen and told me to just stick to Perl or ColdFusion (which they have already). Our department's internal website resides on the same server as many other sites for the company. I've resorted to finding only Perl based CMS's but there is so few compared to PHP.

Are they just ignorant/lazy or do they really have something to be afraid of? They said they wanted a business case for it. And I don't have enough knowledge to give that.

All comments are appreciated. Thanks.

PHP doesnt interfere with anythink as long as you setup the webserver up correct to parse php files with the PHP inteprerter.

PHP 4 was certainly at least as effective as ASP 3-4, JSP, Cold Fusion and Perl.[/quote]

Here are some links to a few case studies...
