General Development Have you considered setting up a PHP 5 on your Linux server, but not had the time to learn how? This article will help guide you through the installation of a PHP 5 environment using the industry's first integrated PHP environment that includes the IBMCloudscape database server. Installation and configuration is greatly simplified using Zend Core for IBM compared to setting up a complete development and deployment environment from scratch.

That would be possible. For one thing PHP supports ODBC, so that would give you a wide range of databses to chose from.

There are also native PHP drivers for Postgresql, last time I looked that was true for Firebird as well but unless you use common free databases like MySQL or Postgresql you may have to recompile PHP to make it work.
It whats enabled varies from distro to distro.
