Solution in php:

function solution($A) {
    $i = $n = 0;
    $n = count($A);

    if(3 == $n){
        return 0;
    }

    $max_sum_end   = array_fill(0, $n, 0);
    $max_sum_start = array_fill(0, $n, 0);

    for($i = 1; $i < ($n - 1); $i++){
        $max_sum_end[$i] = max(0, $max_sum_end[$i - 1] + $A[$i]);
    }

    for($i = $n - 2; $i > 0; $i--){
        $max_sum_start[$i] = max(0, $max_sum_start[$i + 1] + $A[$i]);
    }

    $temp     = $maxvalue = 0;

    for($i = 1; $i < ($n - 1); $i++){
        $temp = $max_sum_end[$i - 1] + $max_sum_start[$i + 1];
        if($temp > $maxvalue){
            $maxvalue = $temp;
