We want to move away from HHVM, as T176370 states; this task is the tracking task of the first quarterly goal for the SRE team work for switching to PHP7.
Objectives are the following:
- Install and configure php-fpm alongside HHVM on the application servers T201140
- Refactor Apache configuration to allow selection of PHP engine based on HTTP request T196968
- Stretch: Evaluate performance of PHP 7.0, 7.2 versus HHVM, and pick one.
- Stretch: Refactor the puppet module "mediawiki" classes to role/profile structure.
