Performance and load time wise…
Is it worth upgrading Cakephp 2.3 to 2.10 and PHP 5.6 to 7.2?
“In theory”, how much performance boost would I be expecting?
Why I ask this?
I’m working on an app that was working fine on a dedicated server (reaching 12% of CPU use) but it recently got migrated to a cloud server with the same specs( CPU and RAM wise ) and the load times got significantly higher (furthermore, it uses about 70% of the CPU…) .
This app is expected to DIE (no longer being used) in about 6 months (so the question is not related to the amount of work I would do to upgrade it, but the performance increase that I would hypothetically get if I upgrade it).
Why I don’t consider upgrading to Cakephp 3.x or 4.x?
Because I think that the remaining lifetime of this app is not worth it, I’m just looking to boost the response time and use less cloud resources.
I’m already considering:
- Replacing Apache 2.4 with the latest NGINX version available.
- Replacing MySQL with Percona
Thanks in advance!
