SitePoint PHP Blog:
Build Virtual Machines Easily with PuPHPet - Part 2
December 26, 2013 @ 10:18:52

On the SitePoint PHP blog Matthew Setter is back with the second part of his series looking at using PuPHPet to make VMs easily. In this second part, he continues on and looks more at the configuration files generated and tweaking them a bit.

We looked at how to configure most of the options and how to use the generated configuration, with some basic vagrant commands. But that's as far as we went. So in this second part of the series, we're going further. Specifically, we're going to be looking at the two core files used: common.yaml, and Vagrantfile. We'll be making some changes to them, then provisioning the virtual machines to reflect the configuration changes.

He talks about some of the changes he'll be making including the location of the shared folder and some of the setup of the PHP installation. He also updates the XDebug and MySQL configurations to change a few other options for more control over the resulting instance.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
HHVM revisited
December 23, 2013 @ 10:57:01

The SitePoint PHP blog has a new post from Bruno Skvorc talking about a technology that's growing more and more popular all the time in the PHP ecosystem - HHVM, the virtual machine version of Facebook's HipHop software.

Just over two years have passed since the last post about HHVM by Matt Turland. What changed in that time? Did anything? Let's see just how successful PHP's quest for performance was.

Bruno takes a step back and, for those not sure what the HHVM is, explains the technology a bit and what some of the project's goals are. He talks about its compatibility with current software (like OSes and web servers) and the inclusion of FastCGI support. He also talks about some of the other main issues around the use of the HHVM like:

  • Performance considerations
  • Pre-analyzing
  • Authoritative Cache

Mikko Koppanen:
Memcached protocol support
November 15, 2013 @ 11:15:38

Mikko Koppanen has posted about some updates he's making to the PECL memcached extension, more specifically around binary protocol support.

There are quite a few things still missing and only binary protocol is supported at the moment, but the code seems to work reasonably well in small-scale testing. I am not sure whether this is useful for anyone, but at least it allows things such as quick prototyping of network servers, exposing sqlite database over memcached protocol etc.

An example of code using this new functionality is included in the post showing how to create both a simple sever with attached "get" and "set" handlers and a client to connect to it and enable the binary protocol.

The code is still work in progress but it's available in github: https://github.com/mkoppanen/php-memcached/tree/feature-server. Note that you need to compile libmemcached with -enable-libmemcachedprotocol and the PECL memcached extension with -enable-memcached-protocol.
