    Um, maybe?

    I dunno, that's a good question. I would think yes, though it would probably take some hacking

    What are you trying to accomplish? Is it that there's a php webapp that has functionality that you want on your phone? I used to run a Django/python/Apache webserver on my Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, I'm sure it can be done with Android somehow.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've written a simple php script that I would like to run on my phone.
    I don't need the 'web server' to server any other devices only mine !

    Thanks :)

    I believe this is possible there is already a http server on the market maybe you can modify its source to add a php interpreter :)
