The Southeast's premier PHP community

February 2009 Meeting

When: Thursday, February 5, 2009 — 7pm-9pm
Where: Consulate General of Canada

Presentation: PHP & Apache: Why httpd.conf Is Your New BFF!

Apache’s configuration files can be used to configure how Apache operates, but they can also be used to configure PHP and how Apache httpd interacts with PHP. In this talk, Jeff Jones explains the different ways Apache can be configured, explains many of the useful config options available for Apache modules, including our own mod_php, and showcases example of how they can be used with, and instead of, your PHP code.

Mini-topic: Design Patterns: The Registry Pattern

Each month, we’ll take a look at a different design pattern, exploring why you might want to use it, and showing how to implement it in PHP.

This month, we’ll explore the Registry Pattern with Ben Ramsey.


Our meeting takes place at the Consulate General of Canada at 100 Colony Square in Midtown Atlanta (at the corner of Peachtree and 14th Streets). Click here for directions. You will need to see the concierge in order to gain access to the 17th floor.
