    Hey guys, I have a script in php that comments on blog posts, however its rather slow, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a UNIX language(seeing as my vps is linux) to recode the bot in? multi threading, curl, etc,


    Any suggestions?


    Thanks,
    S

    it's probably slow because it's either poorly coded or the VPS is slow. PHP will generally be the best and easiest way. How much memory is on the VPS? Maybe you can throttle the script so it doesn't use so much memory, upgrade the vps to have more ram, or recode the script to run smarter.
