Download Ensuring good performance is key to the success of any website. This white paper presents the results of performance benchmarks for comparing several common PHP runtime environments and configurations. The application used for benchmarking is Drupal, the open source social publishing platform. Tested runtime environments included plain PHP, Zend Server (www.zend.com/products/server), and open source optimizers, such as APC and WinCache. For the purpose of this benchmark, a simple Drupal website was set up and tested in various commonly used Windows and Linux configurations.
