PHP 7 Alpha 1 was released yesterday, marking the beginning of the PHP 7 major series, though the GA version is scheduled to be released by the end of 2015. PHP 7 has improved performance, up to twice as fast as PHP 5.6, and consistent 64-bit support. “2015 is shaping up to be an amazing year for PHP. You’ll not only benefit from a whole slew of new features but also from performance going through the roof!” promises the PHP team. Quite exciting, isn’t it?

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!

LiteSpeed has just released LiteSpeed Web Server 5.0 RC3. This latest iteration contains some exciting features, including HTTP/2 support and improved ESI support (for page caching with hole-punching). Most importantly, though, it is very stable. Anyone who’s interested in ESI, SPDY, HTTP/2, or WebSocket proxy support should try out RC3. (more…)
Long-running PHP processes, as a result of a poorly written script or a DoS attack, can kill your server’s resources. This is why LiteSpeed Web Server has a number of features to automatically abort these processes.
Sometimes, though, users have a process they need to run for a long time. (BackupBuddy is a prime example of this.) For these users, we’ve recently revamped our guide to disabling PHP timeouts. This guide takes you through all the features that could cause a process to end before it’s finished, and how to tweak them. If you’re trying to configure LiteSpeed Web Server to work with BackupBuddy, ImportBuddy, or any other WordPress module that relies on a WP built-in cron job, this is just the guide for you.
We’re always adding more documentation. If you have an issue or feature that you’d like to see documented, let us know on our forum.
