In this chapter, we will discuss how to use PostgreSQL with web services such as Apache/PHP, which is one of the most famous web services available in the market. In this chapter, we will demonstrate all the concepts using
PHP Version => 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.16
PostgreSQL(libpq) Version => 9.3.11
As the scope of the book is limited to Postgres development essentials, we hope that you have basic apache/PHP skills, which is the reason we are directly jumping into the PHP scripting sections.
