PHP is an open source development language. Every other platform other than the IBM i has the ability to install and use PHP by itself (sans Zend Server).
IBM i is unique in this. I believe to be fair to customers, the option of installing PHP without Zend Server should be available. Python, Node.JS, Ruby, and other open source languages are available for installation, and I believe PHP should be treated the exact same way.
The PHP rpm needs to be ported to PASE. It needs to be part of the IBM i RPM repos and installable via yum.
To clarify: This is not a duplicate of 125200. This RFE is requesting the full power of PHP via an RPM. DB2 connection, php modules, all the bells, whistles, and features that come with PHP; not just php-cli.
