PhpChess is chess server software program which allows webmasters to offer chess via their own website. Its name (phpChess) was derived from the programming language it was written in ( PHP). Unlike chess servers or game sites, phpChess is designed to be installed in a similar principle to phpbb and allows clubs, websites, universities schools and other organisations to set up their own chess server. phpChess supports different modes of play and adheres to the chess rules set down by FIDE.
phpChess is used by clubs, online sites, schools, Universities and other communities to enable either open or closed community chess playing via the phpChess server.
