The php8.2 webservice type includes support for running PHP scripts from files with a .php in $HOME/public_html using a FastCGI helper process.

Use the webservice command to manage your web service:

Operating a PHP web service
$ webservice --backend=kubernetes php8.2 start|stop|restart

Visit https://<TOOLNAME>.toolforge.org. Look for any errors from your PHP code in $HOME/error.log.

If you need a shell with your PHP version installed, for example to install dependencies, you can use:

Launching a shell with your PHP version available
tools.my-tool@tools-sgebastion-07:~$ webservice --backend=kubernetes php8.2 shell
