cross-host benchmarking with wordpress
I am doing some cross-host benchmarking with wordpress, and rather than going to the huge trouble of setting up an identical install of wordpress on each host, a huge investment of time, etc., I want to create a single php file that would simulate the php demands of wordpress and use that file to gauge each host’s relative wordpress efficiency.
What might such a file look like? Or does it matter? Would a standard php benchmark file suffice?
Note: for my purposes, I’m ignoring database calls from my calculations.
