    Default Make php faster?

    hi,

    I've been recently testing a little few things with php (mainly speed).
    On thing I've noticed is that php is incredible SLOW to start up.
    Compared a perl script and php script aside of each other. In case of my
    system it took perl roughly 6ms , but php over 30ms . php only got
    activated things like MySQL, ming en pdflib.
    Ok, the runnings time are pretty short, but I try to make things as
    efficient as possible. Mainly because it is for a production server and
    can't predict what customers will do.
    Are there ways to get php at least to catch up with perl's speed?

    Thanks in advanced,

    If you can install stuff on the server, you can try Zend performance suite,
    or ionCube PHP Accelerator. They can significantly slash script load times
    since they cache allready pd code for the script. This has really
    beneficall effect on larger scripts.

    You may want to try Turck MMCache caching extension. There are also
    other caching extension, some very expensive. This one is Open Source
    and it is claimed to be the fastest.
