It does! I have set it up before with no real issues. One caveat, I would leave the database in MySQL rather than pushing it down into DB/2. I noticed a bit of a speed difference (not much but sufficient to notice) when I used DB2.

Also you might consider doing a small bit of work management. I found by replacing the routing program in QHTTPSVR so you could route the Drupal web site into a separate memory pool, (I went as far as a new subsystem) your control of the performance is better. Depends on the load on the site, and how much else you have going on in QHTTPSVR but getting it away from the memory used by the administration server seems to have made things work better.

Has anyone ever tried using Drupal open-source on IBM i? It says it is Apache/MySQL/PHP which means with Zend on i it should work.
