this does not necessarily solve the "migration", you mention, but Alans team has created a "siteadd" tool for quickly setting up a new php config with apache

Where it comes from really makes no difference to me.  Keeping the HTTP server configurations on IBM i intact is what I am after.  Yes, I could go "all in" on Apache/PHP in PASE.  But I'd rather not have to re-jigger all the configurations I so lovingly created on HTTP Server for i.

Don't see much on Alan's site regarding what those changes might be, but I'll dig deeper.  Again, where the RPM comes from and is maintained is of secondary importance (although Alan's group has high marks...)

Why not go with Alan Seiden's offering Pete?  A better more complete package than the new Zend offering and support (if you opt to pay for it) from people who know and love IBM i. for details.

Been slowly moving all of my IBM i HTTP artifacts from the old Power 6 to my Power 9....OY! It's taken forever.  Finally got to the apps running Wordpress and the like and have discovered issues with the ZendServer install that is preventing the php files from running: [zend_enabler:error]  Can not find binding for type='application/x-httpd-php'  In looking for a solution I found a few long forgotten posts about ZendServer being no longer "free" as of June 30, 2021 and since that is fairly close in, decided to head the ZendPHP direction.

Here is the question:  Will I be able to use the the existing IBM i HTTP server configs "as-is"?  What will I need to change?  I read through a few articles about the change but didn't see any specific examples of someone using the RPM install of ZendPHP and continuing to use IBM i HTTP server and what, if any, changes needed to made.

Anyone make the jump?  Any pointers?
