Q: What is PHP?

A: PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language. It has a syntax familiar to both Perl and C. PHP-enabled web pages are treated just like regular HTML pages and you can create and edit them the same way you normally create regular HTML pages.

Q: Do I have access to my own PHP configuration (php.ini)?

A: For PHP in CGI mode --> Yes.
For this you will need to grab the default php.ini on the server from /etc/php.ini customize it and put it into your /cgi-bin directory of your virtual server.
