    I am trying to convince a client that a PHP based solution will be the most flexible, quickest and most robust solution for their needs.

    However, they want to be convinced that it's a viable solution and want examples of high traffic and high profile, mission critical sites that use PHP.

    I read on Zend that mp3.lycos.com uses PHP, but could find little evidence on the site. Anyone know of other sites?

    I just erased a newsletter from Zend or somewhere else that listed a few companies. Off the top of my head, just two;
    Motorola and Amazon Auction(?) Site.
    Securityspace has a fun little chart showing the moderate (only 33% of 1.25M Apache servers use PHP, not including other webservers.) popularity of PHP http://www.securityspace.com/s_surve...pachemods.html

    I'll try to look for a list, because I know I have that in a file someplace.

    Why not show your client the cheap man's networksolutions? http://directnic.com runs PHP and it's the cheapest buy in town for domains!

    PS: No, I don't work for DirectNIC, although I wish I did...

    I've seen tons of major sites with .phtml extensions, but can't remember any. i guess they thing the extension looks better that php or php3 (BTW, does .php4 work with PHP4? I never tried it.)

    I've seen xoom.com listed as using PHP (at php.net) and I also recall that many large sites like linux.com and themes.org use PHP extensively... I notice the other day that Napster's website was using PHP... Thats got to be a high volume site and when you consider that the Napster homepage appears in the program when you first startup (new versions anyway)....
    Freshmeat.net is another good example...

    Check the zend.com case studies...

    As for your question JonLed - php will parse any extension you tell it to. For example I could have page.xyz and as long as Apache is set to run the PHP engine on .xyz files it will parse... thats why some sites can use .htm files when they really have PHP running in behind the scenes. Personally I like to just have .php files instead of .php3 or .php4 cause then when php5 comes our you don't have to change

    skinz.org uses PHP. I have seen others, but I don't remember them all.

    IBM? Whereabouts on their site do they use it? I found some Lotus Domino driven pages, but nothing powered by PHP.
