RE: When I started writing PHP...

in #phplast year

I came to PHP just a bit before that from doing everything with server-side includes and Cold Fusion. I still have the source code for my old website with a bunch of .shtml files.

It's fun looking back at the things that were awesome before they were terrible. I remember thinking that ADODB was a pretty sweet database layer that would let me change from one database to another. Then PDO came around. I've still never moved a project from one database to another.


Ha! Yeah, the DB portability argument has been around forever and it's still not really a thing.

Another one I forgot: It was considered good practice to tweak your Apache config so that all .html files were processed as PHP, to hide the fact that you were using PHP. Because security through obscurity, yo!
