PHP5.5 promises much improved performance, and now that my favourite linux distribution (ubuntu) includes it, I decided it was time to put this to the test.

The test environment is a virtual ubuntu server, with 1.5GB of RAM, and default settings for everything. I installed webtrees 1.4.3 and loaded the tree from the demo server. Testing was done using apache-bench
ab -n 100  "http://192.168.0.20/pedigree.php?rootid=i1&ged=demo"

The results are:

PHP5.4 - 6.5 pages/second
PHP5.4+APC - 23 pages/second
PHP5.5 - 28 pages/second

That's a 20% improvement. I'll be upgrading soon!

Is there any reason not to enable PHP5.5 with webtrees 1.5.3?

Hello Graham,

Why did you dig up an old post from 10 months ago? Why do you ask a question about webtrees version 1.5.3 in the category webtrees version 1.4.6?

Many of us use PHP 5.5 variations. You must be using the development files (not recommended) to use PHP 5.6
