I'm loading up a fresh development computer for one of my new hires. As a standard, I put in a very basic LAMP server on all of our development computers. The one I'm currently loading is running 12.04 x64. I load in the following packages:
And I pretty much say yes to all of their dependencies.
I put in a phpinfo() file into the root of my /var/www to double check what comes with the base install of LAMP, and was surprised to find a section on Zend. Specifically it says:
This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine: Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2012 Zend Technologies
Does that mean that the base install of a LAMP server includes Zend? We don't use Zend anywhere in our stack, and I don't love the idea of it being installed on our computers without any specific use.
