I was wondering if there were any ways to simulate loads on a PHP script
running on the server? Basically, I'd just like to take one of my sites
through a dry-run so to speak and simulate x number of visitors.
Ideally, I'd prefer something that didn't have to be installed on the
remote server. Also, it would have to be something I could use from
within Linux, as I only have Windows running as a VM, and I'm not sure
it would work as intended if run though a VM.
Have any of you used such tools, and if so, are there any you'd
recommend?

I have used JMeter in the past.
Since it is written in Java it will run just fine on Linux. Setting up a test scenario may take some time but it can browse your page like a regular user would (with delays) and supply input where required. This is executed from a client machine and does not require anything to be installed on your server.
