Java, .Net, Scala, Clojure, Haskell, even PHP (with the fantastic Symfony2 framework).

Wasn't that the reason that we use Rails not to need to escape from it?

Yes and no.

It's a longer story, for another blog post, probably. In short, I believe that Rails is good for the start (as long, as you're not efficient with other approaches yet), however it's bad for a longer run.

Rails gives you a nice start, very quickly. This usually helps with the costs and …

…that there's always more than one way to do it. In fact, there may be dozens of ways to do it. PHP shares a similar trait in that it gives you a large set of tools and leaves the construction up to you.

Ruby, and especially Rails, is the opposite, and Python definitely leans more in that direction. Essentially, it's the difference between building a chair from raw lumber and assembling one from IKEA . This isn't to say there's anything wrong with assembling from …

…already running on Hack, and it looks to deliver some exciting improvements from its PHP influence, we thought we'd make it a bit easier for you to run your own apps on Hack by working with them to create a Heroku buildpack . To highlight a few of the awesome things about Hack:

Many PHP files are already valid Hack, so you can just start with an existing PHP project

Gradual typing, which lets dynamic and statically typed code play well together

More language features …

on Hacker News and on Reddit with much lang on PHP hate. Realize Facebook is not trying to build the next perfect language. Historically they coded their web tier in PHP so they have a lot of code working in production. It would be insane to throw that all away. Over the years they've put a lot of work into making PHP more efficient. Hack continues that work by making PHP a better language, coupling PHP's convenient interpreted nature with static typing …

* Introduced more secure location of PHP script configs to harden a Cacti setup

* Addressed CVE-2014-2569

We have introduced a more secure location /etc/cacti/ for PHP script configs. Earlier, the only way was to keep .php.cnf configs inside of scripts/ folder which falls under the web directory of Cacti setup, thus provides a potential security vulnerability. We strongly recommend to move all .php.cnf files from /usr/share/cacti/scripts/ to /etc/cacti/ and also harden your Cacti…

…tests with PHP, and I found that the overhead to response time is due more to additional PHP code than the performance on the database server side.

One more performance consequence of using prepared statements: compatibility with the query cache. If you issue SQL statements with the text protocol, i.e. using PREPARE and EXECUTE statements , then MySQL cannot use the query cache. But applications typically run dynamic SQL using the binary protocol, and that is compatible with …
