I guess you should also find support from a native FOSS project in your country, terralib.org. It supports several RDBMS including PostgreSQL (with and without PostGIS) and there is also a TerraPHP API.
You can also find thesis from students from the department where TerraLib is developed at http://www.dpi.inpe.br/geopro/teses.html, including mine :)
List of TerraLib projects: http://www.terralib.org/php/about.php?body=ListofProjects
There was a article with the INPE's FOSS history on this same website but I think they took it off.
Hope it helps,
