FrankenPHP vs. PHP-FPM: Drupal Performance Compared


Fabien Clement recently explored the integration of FrankenPHP with Drupal, presenting findings that highlight the performance nuances between traditional PHP-FPM + Nginx stacks and the newer FrankenPHP setup. Conducted against the backdrop of SymfonyCon Disneyland Paris 2022 and DrupalCamp Rennes in 2024, these tests offer insights into FrankenPHP's capabilities, including increased performance and simpler configuration. 

Despite FrankenPHP's relative infancy, results indicate its competitive edge, especially when Drupal caches are enabled, albeit with minor advantages for the established PHP-FPM + Nginx configuration. Further comparison with PostgreSQL and MariaDB databases under FrankenPHP revealed a significant improvement in response times favoring MariaDB. This analysis by Clement provides a critical examination of evolving PHP server solutions and their implications for Drupal performance, suggesting a potential shift in preferred technologies for future web development.
