  • 1. How to get the most with Windows and Windows Azure<br />Kanwaljeet Singla & Sumit Chawla<br />Microsoft Corporation<br />
  • 2. Agenda<br />PHP on Windows<br />How to make PHP fly on IIS<br />SQL Server Driver for PHP<br />Web Platform Installer<br />Community<br />PHP on Windows Azure<br />What is the Microsoft Cloud?<br />Deploying a PHP application to the cloud<br />Windows Azure SDKs and Tools for PHP<br />Questions / Open Discussion<br />
  • 3. FastCGI<br />Fast and Reliable.<br />v1.0 released in Oct 2007<br />v1.5 released in Nov 2009<br />Consistent set of features across all IIS versions:<br />FastCGI in IIS 7.5 – new features included in OS<br />FastCGI in IIS 7.0 – install the FastCGI update (http://www.iis.net/expand/FastCGI)<br />FastCGI in IIS 5.1/IIS 6.0 – install FastCGI 1.5 extension<br />Recommended way of running PHP on Windows<br />
  • 4. FastCGI (cont.)<br />New features:<br />Auto-tuning of maxInstances<br />Automatic recycling of PHP processes when php.ini changes<br />Useful tips<br />Use latest version of FastCGI and turn on dynamic maxInstances and monitorChangesTo features<br />Increase InstanceMaxRequests value and match the value to PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS environment variable<br />
  • 5. PHP 5.3<br />PHP 5.3 improvements:<br />Using VC9 compiler (PHP 5.2 used VC6)<br />Optimized API calls (using Win32 instead of POSIX)<br />All PHP libraries built from the source code<br />Compatibility fixes<br />Windows builds are available at:<br />http://windows.php.net/<br />From: http://ilia.ws/files/Confoo2010_PHP53.pdf <br />“Substantial performance improvements on Windows (40% +)” <br />
  • 6. WinCache 1.0 <br />PHP Accelerator optimized for Windows<br />Opcode cache<br />File cache<br />Resolve path cache<br />Download from:<br />http://www.iis.net/expand/WinCacheForPhp<br />Contributed by MS to PECL:<br />Source code on http://pecl.php.net/wincache/<br />Documentation on http://www.php.net/wincache/<br />BSD license<br />Contributions are welcome!<br />
  • 7. Why use opcode cache?<br />To serve index.php in WordPress, PHP has to read, parse, compileand execute more than 100 php files!<br />
  • 8. WinCache 1.0<br />Useful Tips:<br />Increase maxInstances or use dynamic maxInstances<br />Adjust file cache and opcode cache sizes. Use wincache.php to study cache usage<br />Keep wincache.chkinterval value high on production servers and low on development machines<br />Restrict access to wincache.php by using built-inauthentication or web server authentication<br />
  • 9. WinCache 1.1<br />Beta2 released in April 2010<br />Object cache – Compatible with APC APIs<br />WinCache session handler<br />File change notification support<br />Function hooks<br />Useful Tips:<br />Turn on user cache if application supports it<br />Port from existing code which uses APC’s object cache<br />Keep file change notification turned on<br />Turn on session handler if not running a web farm<br />
  • 10. SQL Server Driver for PHP<br />Thin layer over SNAC (ODBC)<br />Single functional layer with thin API layer on top<br />SQL Server Driver for PHP 1.1<br />SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0<br />php_sqlsrv.dll<br />php_pdo_sqlsrv.dll<br />php_sqlsrv.dll<br />PDO API<br />SQLSRV Native API<br />SQLSRV Native API<br />Core Functional Layer<br />SQL Server Native Client (ODBC)<br />

  • 12. SQL Server Query Tips<br />Range query:<br />SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY date LIMIT 20,10<br />Use TOP & ROW_NUMBER<br />SELECT sub2.*,ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY sub2._l2) AS _lFROM ( SELECT 1 AS _l2, sub1.* FROM ( SELECT TOP(30) * FROM table ORDER BY date ) AS sub1) as sub2WHERE _l BETWEEN 20 AND 30;<br />SELECT * FROM (<br /> SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY date)<br />AS _l FROM table<br />) AS t<br />WHERE _l BETWEEN 20 AND 30<br />ORDER BY _l;<br />
