Would installing PHP interfere with anything?
Posted 21 July 2006 - 02:28 PM
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.

1. PHP has a low barrier to entry.
2. PHP costs nothing to deploy commercially.
3. PHP has all of the documentation needed to learn it efficiently and correctly.
4. PHP has a universally recognized certification for professionals.
5. PHP has a track record of success in all scales of successful enterprises (even if those enterprises don’t like to admit it).
PHP 4 was certainly at least as effective as ASP 3-4, JSP, Cold Fusion and Perl.
Here are some links to a few case studies...
