php deployment

P: n/a
sorry for the [dumb] questions, I'm a newbie. On all my readings done I haven't been able to find answers to these questions.

1. Is there a deployment tool for php applications? sort of like wise installer or something?

2. Does the client have to have apache/mysql I can just do a php/access combo and deploy it as a standalone application?

3. Based on above, Does php support standalone type of applications or is it a server-client based?
thanks in advance.

Deployment consists of copying the files to your server, no need for an
installer.

If you need a more verbose reply, Google for "php deployment tools", which
brings up some applicable links.

The webserver is mandatory if you want to make your scripts accessible
through the WWW. If you want to create shell scripts, the php interpreter is
sufficient (see: www.php.net/features.commandline).

The choice of using a database and which is yours, as long as PHP supports
it (which is also the case for Access).

or is it a server-client based?


There are some compilers available, but they are quite limited. If you want
to create client-side PHP applications, you might want to have a look at the
GTK extension (http://gtk.php.net/).
