Parse php_uname(); If you look PHP_OS it is just going to say AIX. The info in php_uname is also at the top of php_info

Subject: [WEB400] Zend on IBM i - Retrieve OS or Server Type in Code

In a PHP web application we've developed running in ZendServer 9.1, we would like to be able to retrieve either the OS, server type, etc so that we can build the connection string appropriately to connect to the DB. We do our development in a local instance of MySql and then eventually deploy to an IBM i.

Any clues? Thanks!
