Hi there, I normally run my SS3.1 Apps on Apache + mod_php setups, including lots of extra modules (php5-tidy, php5-curl, php5-geoip, php5-gd, php5-xcache, php5-memcached, php5-mcrypt). Most of these modules are necessary for the developments I did.

Since I haven't any experience with hhvm yet, my big question is, will hhvm be compatible with these modules, does it bring it's own implementations, how in general do I have to use it? Does HHVM just replace the general PHP interpreter and make usage of all the php5-* modules I install?

Hopefully someone can tell me a bit more about this.

kind regards
