I'd like to know if Rails requires significantly more resources than
PHP. Assume the following setups:
Apache 2.2 w/ Passenger
Apache 2.2 w/ MPM worker and Fast CGI
In one of my Rails apps running the above setup, I'm at roughly 80mb
RAM idle, and for each person that visits the site roughly 10-20mb are
taken for each. This seems like a lot and I was wondering if it
continues to be like this. PHP seems to require less resources, but
based on my limited experience I can't make a definite conclusion.
Could I get some details on why it does take more resources and what I
can do to minimize resource usage as much as possible?
Here's a top-10 list of PHP frameworks:
It's about a year old. Which PHP framework are you wanting to compare
to Ruby on Rails? As Marnen said, PHP in itself is a language whereas
RoR is a framework. You can only compare PHP to Ruby if you are asking
for a language to language comparison...
As for Ruby..
PHP Framework aims to speed up the creation and maintenance, and also to
replace the repetitive coding tasks by power, control and pleasure.
