Scaling PHP


This two-part mini series details the process of making a website able to handle high amounts of traffic, specifically with code in PHP. PHP has a bit of a bad reputation on this front, but this series will walk you through a way to keep users happy by making your website fast-paced even with high traffic.


Part One

Part one gives an overview of scaling PHP and walks you through the first step in the process: replacing Apache.

Part Two

The second piece of this series dives into more advanced topics that demand consideration when moving a LAMP stack to a scaled architecture.
