Phish.net is delivered to you thanks to a number of technologies.
The Phish.net foundation is built on Linux, Apache, PHP, and MySQL. We make extensive use of the GPL GNU tools on Linux. We use memcached for in-memory caching and PHP Active Record as our PDO-based database API. We use Node.js for socket based real-time data such as our chat app.
Git is our revision control system. Let's Encrypt and Certbot provide our SSL certificates.
On the client side, we rely heavily on jQuery. We make use of RequireJS, MomentJS, and Handlebars in some sections of the site. Bootstrap provides our basic layout, with SASS as a CSS pre-processor. Other packages in use include Bootstrap Sortable and ckeditor.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
