    Have any of you guys used Facebook's HHVM (the replacement for HipHop with PHP) with XenForo? If so, how did it turn out?

    Well I think this is pretty cool especially for owners of big websites.

    From http://www.pcworld.com/article/2045353/facebook-invents-a-php-virtual-machine.html
    I wonder if this could work for xenforo, @Mike ? The templating system makes me think that it might not have much of an effect, but I could be wrong. Thoughts?

    Thanks Rob. I don't understand what this is or what it means, so I have sent a link to Tim @ Nimbus.

    Is this faster than centmin and litespeed? I'd give it a try.

    @DRE I think it will be miles quicker but you will need to go some to make xF and HHVM play ball together. Let us know how you get on though :)

    No Namespace support? lol


    Who am I kidding I don't even know what that means.

    I'm not 100% but I think that's a showstopper. @Mike can maybe advise.

    XenForo itself doesn't use namespaces at this time. There are a select few add-on developers that use them (and effectively up the minimum required PHP version).

    I'm just now seeing this thread. I'm going to ask a managed vps host to experiment with this with me.
