PHP-FPM might get merged into PHP

If you’re running a highly loaded web site powered by PHP, you must be using php-fpm, don’t you?

While new releases of php-fpm always immediately follow PHP releases, it’s still a PITA to always patch the PHP source code at every release.

How come php-fpm hasn’t been merged into PHP at the first place? The main reason is an incompatible license. Or rather… was.

Andrei just announced that the license of php-fpm had been changed. It’s now the PHP license, and php-fpm can now technically get officially merged into PHP.

Here’s a relevant post of the High-performance PHP group.

PHP is still going to suck, but faster :)
