Apache Server on Repl.it!
programmeruser (604)


I've gotten the Apache Server to work successfully on repl.it. (PHP doesn't work currently, for some strange reason it can't find the apache php package.)
Edit: PHP now works!

@programmeruser It's a shame that people don't care about PHP :(

PHP has potential but everyone is saying that it's either outdated or bad which makes new developers not like it.. It's just all the bad developers giving bad influence on new developers.. @Baconman321

@Battledash2 Yeah.

Personally though, without some other server management service, PHP is kinda bad. I mean, sure it's simple and all, but it needs a server to work with because it is bad at handling redirects and such; Apache is much better with that.

Yeah.. PHP + Apache is good.. But... I'd rather use Node anytime tbh.. PHP is good though, I've made a few websites with it. It was easy to use and straight forward. I'd rather use NodeJS just because I'm more used to it, not because PHP is bad (it's not bad) @Baconman321

@Battledash2 Yeah. In fact, it's a good idea to know it since so many hosting services might offer PHP as a main language (that said, it doesn't meant that you shouldn't learn another language).
