appserver.io - The most powerful open source PHP infrastructure

appserver.io push PHP into a new era!

PHP enters a new era with a stable release of appserver.io. After nearly two years of development, TechDivision GmbH finally released appserver.io 1.0.0, the first real PHP Application Server, fully written in PHP, that supports multi-threading out-of-the-box and is completely open source.

appserver.io enters the stage as a fully featured infrastructure solution that replaces the "A" and pulls the 3rd party tools out of the LAMP stack. Based on a fast and rock solid HTTP/1.1 compliant web server written in PHP as the first layer, appserver.io provides a Persistence-Container and a Servlet-Engine as a second layer. Finally, a Message-Queue and a Timer-Service that makes heavy use of the Persistence-Container functionality build the last layer. These completely stateful services are bundled with functionalities like AOP, Dependency-Injection, Design-by-Contract, and Annotations.

Developers do not need other programming skills as all functionality is completely written in PHP. This fact will dramatically lower the barriers and enables PHP developers using appserver.io instantly.

You can use appserver.io with your existing applications like Drupal, Magento or Wordpress and benefit from the performance and additional opportunities of appserver.io.

The most powerful Open Source PHP infrastructure comes with the following features together in one bundle:

  • A fully HTTP/1.1 compliant webserver that can process requests over HTTP, as well as HTTPS
  • Easy to use rewrite engine that is completely compatible to Apache rewrites
  • Servlet Engine that provides a web container enabling developers to load applications and objects in memory
  • Message Queue that provides services enabling developers to process messages asynchronously
  • Timer Service enabling the execution of methods at a determined point in time
  • Persistence Container is enabling developers to hold objects, so-called beans, in memory.

TechDivision GmbH, the company behind appserver.io decided to publish and operate the solution as real open source software. TechDivision is convinced that this will be the best way to make appserver.io part of the PHP community. This way developers that are interested to help pushing the language up to a new level can be part of the project.

The first release is also a proof of concept that stateful application development with PHP, a scripting language, is possible at all and opens countless new opportunities in the PHP ecosystem. Beside a huge roadmap with features for the next release 1.1.0 aka "Iron Knight", TechDivision GmbH will work on a Enterprise Edition that will cover enterprise level requirements like load balancing, clustering and failover functionality.

The tutorial section guides you through the installation process and shows you some interesting cases e.g. running Wordpress on appserver.io or running Magento on appserver.io.
