Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

You make it sound like it is purely a certification issue when it has Apache dependencies. Here I dug one up for you:,230616

.htaccess files? Wow, seriously? That's some seriously badly engineered software you got there.
This just re-inforces what I already said though; it's not a php/mysql/lamp problem. It's a developer problem and I will readily admit that most PHP apps are utter crap.
To be honest, your problem seems to mostly be with PHP and not with any other part of that stack. I can understand that and that's why I don't use it. Unless I really have to and boy does those times make me want to rip my hair out.
