Bedrock HHVM with Fallback to PHP

Any interest or experience in setting up a fallback to PHP when HHVM fails? Example article.

Potentially, as an option:

hhvm: true hhvm_fallback_to_php: true

I’ve seen a bunch of these articles for this method and it doesn’t make sense to me.

Seems like one of those things people are just cargo culting now. If HHVM is so unstable that it needs a fallback then it shouldn’t be used in my opinion.

I know HHVM has issues with memory leaks right now and needs to be restarted, but I’d rather do that (which bedrock-ansible does) than fallback to PHP-FPM.

You should be able to just know what/how your requests are being served and I don’t like how they could just be switching back and forth between the two.

Good point. I’ll leave it alone for now and see how it goes. I better keep my cargo culting to just roots projects. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
