Just like with Python-based frameworks, this requires a few lines of web
server configuration.

On Apache, you might use mod_wsgi to tell the server how to run the code
in one case, and a combination of mod_php and mod_rewrite in the other.
If you're using FastCGI with nginx or lighttpd, I believe the
configuration would look pretty similar in both cases.

Then again, I don't do much web programming any more and generally stay
away from PHP, so I may be misremembering.
