    I want to try HHVM, but not able to install. There was some dependency (ImageMagic and etc.) error and i don't know, how to resolve them.

    Is there any proper guide available?

    I've only been able to get HHVM working on Debian / Ubuntu so far, using the pre-built packages. I was running it on Ubuntu with 8GB RAM, and after 6 hours, it ate ALL the RAM on the server, forked, and died. Swapped to php-fpm and no issues since.

    Yes, I saw todo list page.

    There was lot of talk and progress going on with HHVM, even PHP core team discussing about it https://wiki.php.net/phpng.

    Just i want to try.

    Thanks.

    Yeah it's a known issue with HHVM, in some cases it can eat all your memory. HHVM isn't prime time ready for all usage cases yet heh.

    With HHVM 3.3.0 released which includes LTS are there any news about the integration/usage with centminmod? If setup wouldn't be that complicated on CentOS or if someone could provide working setup/build instructions for CentOS 6.5 i'd love to replace php-fpm myself. Performing tests on other machines and setups i could see a performance boost of 3x. Looking into that should be a lot more worth than testing PHP NG for example. HHVM is production ready (but might not be suited for every custom applciation).

    Most folks including me had run into compile issues needing work arounds for HHVM on CentOS 6.x as the HHVM folks are doing all their official testing on Ubuntu/Debian. CentOS 7.x is easier for HHVM but CentOS 7.x has it's own new learning to do due to changes from CentOS 6.x.

    So for Centmin Mod it's just still in testing for me considering 99% of users would be using CentOS 6.x

    CentOS 7 + Facebook HHVM install at How to build HHVM 3.3 on CentOS 7.0 | _ck_ says... but you're on your own for troubleshooting and note install compile time takes >2+ hours for HHVM so run it via screen just in case your SSH connection times out Who uses Screen for linux ? | Centmin Mod Community

    I assume CK meant 1.5-2GB of memory minimum

    Also be sure to keep watching HHVM issues tracker for bugs Issues · facebook/hhvm · GitHub.

    Thanks! I'll try to build and use it in combination with the .08 beta.

    For people finding this thread who would like to test HHVM (3.2.0) on CentOS 6.5 i'll append a "quick and dirty" way. Please be aware that this is no production ready installation instruction and i would be glad if we could write up something together to be able to have a setup process which can be used by everyone who would like to run HHVM in a production environment. I'm to inexperienced to get this done myself.

    Please check:
    and Framework test coverage before considering to use HHVM.

    Usage:
    1. Install EPEL repository
    Code:
    cd /tmp
    wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
    wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
    sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm
    2. Install HHVM
    Code:
    cd /etc/yum.repos.d
    sudo wget http://www.hop5.in/yum/el6/hop5.repo
    yum clean all
    yum install hhvm
    Enter "hhvm --version" to see the installed version.

    3. Follow the instructions to install centminmod outlined here:
    Centmin Mod FAQ - Menu based Nginx installer

    4. Create a HHVM config and edit your vhost config
    Code:
    nano /usr/local/nginx/conf/hhvm.conf
    
    >>INSERT>>
    location ~ \.(hh|php)$ {
        fastcgi_keep_conn on;
        fastcgi_pass   127.0.0.1:9000;
        fastcgi_index  index.php;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include        fastcgi_params;
    }
    <<<<
    
    vhostconf
    
    >>EDIT/INSERT>>
    #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/hhvm.conf;
    <<<<
    5. Stop php-fpm
    Code:
    service php-fpm stop
    chkconfig php-fpm off
    6. Start HHVM
    Code:
    hhvm --mode daemon -vServer.Type=fastcgi -vServer.Port=9000
    7. Restart nginx
    Code:
    ngxrestart
    8. Check if everything is working
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/nginx/html
    nano index.php
    
    >>INSERT>>
    <?php phpinfo();
    <<<<
    Open *your-server-ip*.tld/index.php within your browser and you should see "HipHop".

    I got HHVM working using centos 6.5 and CM beta 2 using the directions above. Then installed WordPress and it worked well except a few tweaks need to be made. When uploading a new plugin/theme it says to put in the FTP info regardless that I have the files
    chown nginx:nginx

    Is their a fix for this? Searching Google returned nothing. Anyone successfully installed WP w/ centmin mod yet?

    nice

    maybe you have same issue as @Andy did at Install - Wordpress FTP access

    see How to Update WordPress Automatically Without Using FTP [Quicktip]

    so edit wp-config.php and add to very bottom of other lines

    Code:
    define('FS_METHOD','direct');
    While you're testing maybe give PHP 7.0.0-dev a try too - it's already natively supported in centmin.sh menu option 5 for PHP upgrades at PHP-FPM - PHP 5.7 (PHPNG) support testing for Centmin Mod betas | Centmin Mod Community - of course not all PHP extensions are supported

    That did work George! Thank You! However, testing HHVM + WordPress + PageSpeed crashed nginx so PageSpeed does not work with HHVM - But it is MUCH faster when using HHVM. It's incredibly fast.

    Nice seems the lead is going back and forth between HHVM and PHP 7. However, PHP 7 much easier to install - which why Centmin Mod .08 betas already have support for PHP7.

    Remember though PHP 7 is pre-alpha while HHVM is production in use heh and still HHVM has memory leaks from time to time still

    interesting tidbit in PHP master commit history = prepare for 7.0.0alpha1 - it's coming :D
    Code:
    +11 Jun 2015, PHP 7.0.0 Alpha 1

    I have it on someone's VPS installed using PHP 7 and WP site, now for some reason all pages gets blank after he did something I don't know.

    I assume it's PHP 7 bug, so I downgraded to PHP 5.6 and problem solve right away.
    So not really ready for production site :D

    for blank pages, tried restarting nginx and php7 ?

    Also from the lockdown article - be aware they sort of changed the benchmarking method by actually altering the code in web PHP apps to better utilise HHVM..
