HHVM 3.6 has problem with MariaDB

The same script php file, always works smoothly on HHVM 3.2 to HHVM 3.5. Until I upgrade it to HHVM 3.6.

It is a simply script which use mysqli connection and so on. Now it is shown the error as below:

Connect failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

I tried to find the answer and faild. So I upgrde the HHVM to nightly build version. It is 3.7-dev.

davidyin@fiob:/etc/hhvm$ hhvm --version
HipHop VM 3.7.0-dev (rel)
Compiler: heads/master-0-g0359d4a4bbb22c5defd7eb024194aed0af24c80b
Repo schema: 9008d5e6e7f6584d09ed3b14deceac5a34f363c1

And it did solve the error, and the script is working as expected.

But, later I found the reason why it happen.


hhvm.mysql.socket = /tmp/mysql.sock

into server.ini

To specify the mysql socket and let HHVM knows how to connect mySQL server or MariaDB server.

I did not try the solution.  I found it here.

PHP Benchmark on HHVM, Nginx Web Server

The test is almost same as I did before on php 5.5, php5.4 and php5.3, or php-fpm. It is running on the HHVM and Nginx.

The installation of Ubuntu 14.04, Nginx, MariaDB, HHVM is posted yesterday.

Using default HHVM settings. The HHVM is version 3.5.0, Nginx is v1.6.2.

|        PHP BENCHMARK SCRIPT        |
Start : 2015-02-12 00:03:25
Server :
PHP version : 5.6.99-hhvm
Platform : Linux
test_ifelse               : 1.541 sec.
test_math                 : 0.935 sec.
test_stringmanipulation   : 1.153 sec.
test_loops                : 2.262 sec.
Total time:               : 5.891 sec.

It took more time than any other php version. I am confused and try to repeat the test, by refreshing the page.
The first ten times, are all around 5.8 seconds. Lower 5.788, higher 6.162. The eleventh gave me a shot, it is only 1.44 seconds. I kept refresh the page and saw similar results, around 1.4 seconds.
