In the realm of modern data handling, Elasticsearch has emerged as a powerhouse, offering rapid data search and analysis.
As a PHP developer, integrating this robust search engine into your projects can elevate your data operations to new heights. In this article, we'll illustrate a concise example of how to create an index, create a document, get a document, and search for documents using PHP's cURL library.
The following examples will empower you to efficiently store, retrieve, and manipulate data through Elasticsearch's RESTful API, all within the familiar PHP environment.
Have you ever wondered if Apache mod-php is faster than php-fpm with Nginx? I surely did.
Each time this question arises, I do a quick research, and I cannot seem to find a definitive answer.

This is why I've decided to conduct my own tests and performance benchmark and settle this debate once and for all.
