As windows PHP developer i thik it would be great to run PHP applications from the browser (without needing a web server). Tere is a project propossing this: the moz_PHP OR MIZILLA PHP at the page "www.thomas-schilz.de/MozPHP/".

But it doesn't work very well and is not updated up to neu versions of Mozilla and Firebird.

If Microsoft could adopt the idea, and develop a php_browser, it wuold be the best tool for testing end even buid desktop applications the same way as web applications.

Sorry, my english writing is not very good.

There are some products for that like DWeb. It is commercial but I think the basic version is free.

So this means php will run like a javascript script at client or it is compiled by server and server offers bytecode directly to an interpreter at browser?

Hi Andrei,
The idea behind MOZPHP is/was the browser (with the cfh protocol) calling php to execute the script and display the generated page. Then, the browser would act as a gui interface for php (desktop) applications writen the same way as web applications. That was the idea. And i think this is great because you wouldn't need a web server. The scripts run locally but works only with php4
and Mozilla 1.5.
DWEB, indicated by Manyel Lemos is a windows program/application that EMBEDS an http server. It seems very good but i'm still testing.

There is also Roadsend PHP compiler that can compile PHP into native executable programs in several platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc..) and comes with an HTTP server that can be used to run PHP applications from a local browser.

Hi Manuel,

The Roadsend Home page says it doesn't support PHP 5 for windows. It seems they are not willing people from windows plataforms... I'm testing dwebpro and til now it's very interesting. They have good support too. it's simple and works fine. Now i'm asking them some questions about serving pages to a LAN or WAN.... but there is also, in sourceforge, the wapache project somewhat similar with dwebpro (instead not so simple)... And, last but not least, i hope someday, we will get something like MOZPHP ( as Andrei said, working in the browser like javascript)...

Roadsend supports PHP 5. What the page says is that there is no pre-built version with PHP 5 support for Windows, but you can built it from source.
