FASTCGI & Joomla



Anyone ever having issue with FastCGI & Joomla ? I just read about FastCGI and very interested with it, but afraid enough to try it to my client’s site.

Is really FastCGI can increase performance significantly ?

FastCGI can only increase performance significantly if you’re using it along-side a caching mechanism like APC or eAccelerator. While FastCGI in itself makes the site a bit faster, you’ll run into many issues down the road with it if your site grows substantially. Tweaking your php.ini to maximize performance also goes a long way (fastcgi or not) to improving your site’s responsiveness.

You can see the speed of my site (link in my sig) below using a custom PHP5 compile with FastCGI and APC (though I normally use eAccelerator), as an example.

It’s crawling along like a drunken slug that had the crap kicked out of it.

That’s what you get for using dial-up while spamming the wiki with more pharmaceutical links! :stuck_out_tongue:

Actually… it is pretty slow. I guess I’ll just have to drop Joomla and setup a “Hello World!” HTML site xD
