    Is there any experience in the field running XenForo under HipHop, Facebook's alternative PHP implementation?

    From what I know, HipHop has issues with Zend.
    Are you at the stage of a forum with 10 million online users? :D

    We are using WP/XF integrated in a very active forum and it uses A LOT of CPU resources. We will be making a laboratory with this under Hiphop and posting updates here :)

    This experiment failed as function namespaces is currently not supported by HVM Hiphop, and required by XF :censored::cry:o_O

    Namespaces are not required (or used) by XenForo.

    Not in the version XenForo uses.

    Well, I'm used to deal with very large vBulletin 3.8.x forums (50+ million posts or 30k+ online users) and performance was never an issue with the right optimizations and server hardware. So with XenForo should be even less demanding. Of course, you cannot run your forums on an Atom processor (figure of speech) and think HipHop will help. Obviously, for a site like Facebook, running HipHop results on substantial hardware savings. For a typical forum, is a waste of time and other technical resources cost to constantly maintain the software.

    Realistically not even worth messing with until you have somewhere in the range of 500+ servers you are running your site on.

    Unless you want to learn Hip Hop personally and want to take on it as a hobby project, I would agree there is no gain :)

    Isn't there still an issue with HipHop not supporting eval() statements and xenForo requiring them for template processing?
