TechTip: Setting Up PHP Scripts on the IBM i

So far, we have sort of assumed that our scripts are all kept on your PC, and that was all well and good. But we live in the i world, so it’s reasonable to expect that’s where we’ll keep our scripts.

Written by David Shirey  

Up to this point, all of the scripts that we have written and debugged and otherwise fooled around with have been kept on your PC in a folder that your browser could access, and that depended on your operating system.

TechTip: New Performance Tools to Keep Your System Snappy

IBM Navigator for i adds a new bird’s-eye-view performance interface in IBM i 7.3.

Written by Steve Pitcher

When talking about IBM i, it’s often stated that it’s the most securable operating system available, not necessarily the most secure. While IBM gives you the tools to ensure your system is secure, the human element must be considered. This is why it’s securable. Each operating system depends entirely on the system administrator to ensure doors are locked and windows are shut. This fact is true about many other aspects of the IBM i operating system, including performance. A system will perform as well as it’s configured to.
