OWL Database or OWL Files (depending on the amount of data) should 
probably be the prefered ones.

There is RAP [1] as library and Powl [2] as an PHP semantic web 
application development framework available. Powl (which is maintained 
by me) contains a lot of useful functions for SemWeb app development 
(e.g. reusable widgets, a web based ontology editor, csv import etc.) 
and is used by a number of projects - unfortunately not everything is as 
well documented as I would like to have it, but hopefully this is going 
to improve soon...
