I am having a Drupal-6 site and was considering to scale it. I came across Pressflow and was wondering about the major differences between the two. I came across a similar question of Drupal-7 vs Pressflow-7 but was looking specifically for Drupal-6 vs Pressflow-6. Can anyone enlighten or share their experience of using both.

  • Did you look at this? pressflow.org/faq Jan 14, 2013 at 6:06
  • @PatrickKenny I did look at the faq but could not find much other than "integration with Varnish and allows for MySQL replication". I was not sure if this is only the difference.

  • I am closing this question as the list of differences between Drupal 6, and Pressflow 6 is not a finite list. Pressflow 6 contains code that has been ported to Drupal 7, and there could be Drupal 7 code that is ported to Pressflow 6. Pressflow 6 is still under development.

Take a look at the wiki: "Comparison - Pressflow versus Drupal".

  • Thanks for the link. Can't vote your answer up but would surely request others to do it. Any link to the performance improvement or benchmarks between the two?
