What others are saying

Chris FidaoCreator of Servers for Hackers

Today I'm appreciating the work @jaydrogers (& others!) put into these base PHP containers.

The official PHP images are...sort of ridiculous.

Johan JanssensCo-Founder of Joomla

Used the excellent Docker-PHP images from @jaydrogers. Demo'ed how to handle 10k async HTTP requests in 3secs, all using nothing else then PHP using OpenSwoole and supervised to perfection with S6.

For a PHP dev, that should not be possible... look on people's face ...priceless!

Žiga ZajcCEO of Rabbit Company

Based on our performance testing, the PHP-FPM image by Server Side Up has the capability to manage 484 requests per second without any project limitations. In comparison, the official PHP image is only able to handle 68 requests per second.
