Just when you thought installing OpenLiteSpeed couldn’t get any easier, it does! With our new ols1clk installation script, you can install OLS (and optionally MySQL and WordPress) with literally one click!
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?
At LiteSpeed Technologies we are always striving to incorporate the newest and best cutting-edge technologies into our family of web servers. This of course extends to the new HTTP/2 network protocol standard (published May 2015). We are proud to have been ahead of the curve in this by providing HTTP/2 support as early as January 23rd for OpenLiteSpeed and April 17th for our Enterprise edition. Apache does not yet have a production quality HTTP/2 module while NGINX’s HTTP/2 support will not be available in 2015.
For the past two years, we have been developing solutions to stay “ahead of the curve” in anticipation of HTTP/2’s impending release and we are very happy to announce some exciting news! The wait is over and the latest RFC has made it official. HTTP/2 is finally here!
We’re gearing up for the impending release of HTTP/2. To prepare, we’ve already got HTTP/2 draft 16 support in both OpenLiteSpeed 1.3.7 and 1.4.4. (more…)
OpenLiteSpeed has made another step towards being the Web’s easiest HTTP server: 4 line install!
OpenLiteSpeed 1.4.2 features a brand new GUI and a Chinese translation. (more…)
