Wordpress Bechmark

In our previous PHP 7 vs HHVM benchmark, Benchmark Series 2: WordPress, we saw HHVM outperform PHP 7 by 7% on WordPress. That test was performed without any cache involvement to test pure HHVM and PHP 7 performance. But what about WordPress performance in a real world situation?

According to W3Techs’ usage report, WordPress is used by 24.3% of all the websites and holds 58.7% of the content management system market share. As the #1 content management system, we want to see how fast WordPress can be in a real world environment.

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?
