Based on the results of the Hello World Benchmark Test, we now know that LiteSpeed and OpenLiteSpeed have the smallest IPC overhead and provides the best performance for PHP 7 and HHVM of the web servers tested. We will be using OpenLiteSpeed to do the 2nd benchmark test where we will be targeting a sample WordPress site to see the performance difference. We know from our first test that PHP 7 is 140% faster than HHVM on hello world. How about when using WordPress?

What is the best platform for the fastest PHP engines?
The competition between PHP 7 and HHVM is starting to heat up. HHVM was previously the front runner, originally converting PHP code to C++ but eventually changing their strategy by instead converting to x86-64 machine code to dramatically increase a PHP site’s performance. PHP however is trying very hard to come out on top with the coming release of PHP 7. Who will win this competition, PHP 7 or HHVM?
LiteSpeed’s latest benchmarks show overwhelming superiority in PHP performance over Apache and nginx. (more…)
Our new static content benchmarks pit both versions of LiteSpeed Web Server against nginx and Apache, with LiteSpeed once again dusting the competition. (more…)
After we posted recent benchmark test results, we got some interests and challenges. (more…)
To perform a fair benchmark requiring a lot of preparation, as you need to know the detail of each product and set appropriate configuration. Recently, we got chance to do some internal testing. (more…)
