I don't remember if it's selected to be installed by default, but there are 2 PHP packages on my DVD, slackware/n/php-4.4.4-i486-3.tgz (update available in patches/packages/php-4.4.4-i486-4_slack11.0.tgz) and extra/php5/php-5.2.0-i486-1.tgz.

You can see if the package is installed by running the following command in the console:

(you must be root)
# pkgtool

Then select "View" from the menu.

I'm usually too lazy to open pkgtool, so i'd just do " ls /var/log/packages | grep php " . just a tip
