I recently tried to setup a droplet with a few wordpress plus HHVM instead of PHP-FPM.
The speed was good, but I eventually discovered that HHVM uses so much RAM that it got killed from time to time. Also, restarting it periodically wouldn’t be as much of a solution because that way I wouldn’t use the JIT compiler fully (since it gets activated after a few calls).
Does any of you uses HHVM on the smallest droplet with wordpress?
