A virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hack and PHP.

Fix unnecessary dns lookups on startup of hhvm in non-server mode.

Summary: Potentially several reverse DNS lookups are done with every invocation of
hphp,even with no arguments anticipating hphp only being used as a server.
If your primary DNS server is down, this makes running scripts hang for a
long period before failure, and slows all scripts down even if your DNS
server is fast.

This makes the lookup lazy so only when necessary, except for #define
FACEBOOK which I didn't want to change the behaviour of (but they probably
should).

Closes #4817

HHVM

HHVM page | Hacklang page | General group | Dev group | Twitter

HHVM (aka the HipHop Virtual Machine) is an open-source virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hack and PHP. HHVM uses a just-in-time compilation approach to achieve superior performance while maintaining the flexibility that PHP developers are accustomed to. To date, HHVM (and its predecessor HPHPc before it) has realized over a 9x increase in web request throughput and over a 5x reduction in memory consumption for Facebook compared with the PHP 5.2 engine + APC.

HHVM should be used together with a FastCGI-based webserver like nginx or apache.

FAQ

Our FAQ has answers to many common questions about HHVM, from general questions to questions geared towards those that want to use or contribute to HHVM.

Installing

If you're new, try our getting started overview.

You can install a prebuilt package or compile from source.

Running

You can run standalone programs just by passing them to hhvm: hhvm my_script.php.

If you want to host a website:

  • Install your favorite webserver
  • Install our package
  • Start your webserver
  • Run sudo /etc/init.d/hhvm start
  • Visit your site at http://.../index.php

Our getting started overview provides a slightly more detailed introduction as well as links to more information.
