Considering a move to RPM-based Community PHP? You’ll need the free, open source PHP Toolkit to connect your PHP applications to resources on your IBM i.
Co-developed by Alan Seiden and maintained by the IBM i community, the toolkit is also known as the XML Toolkit. That’s because the PHP front end and the XMLSERVICE RPG back end communicate via XML.
You’ll find XMLSERVICE in the QXMLSERV library on your IBM i.
You can install the PHP Toolkit for RPM-based PHP in one of three ways:
- Download it at https://github.com/zendtech/IbmiToolkit
- Install it via Composer using the command
composer require zendtech/ibmitoolkit
- Install it as part of Seiden Group’s curated repository of PHP RPMs, built for our clients
