The builtin webserver feature which was bundled with HHVM was dropped a few months ago (IIRC with HHVM 3.0).

It seems like it is not worth to implement a webserver in a native way. HHVM is pushing FAST-CGI support instead since then.

The PHP group should prove the actual benefit of such a server before wasting the time to implement it. The HHVM team surely had reasons to do so.

Thanks for the clarification.

Anyway the point was not so much about being built-in but rather being multi-threaded, so all requests share the same memory pool and database connection pool.

with event loop a builtin webserver could be writen using socket listen loop, manage priority ... something that could be of general use too and arranged differently for other I/O. Someone discussed it?
