That's interesting to know, it seem PHP memory limit could be tune if the issue is related.

There are many solutions in PHP which is often difficult for me to make the decisions, has lead my way to Go (from PHP (pure and Laravel) to Swift to Nodejs to Ruby to Crystal to Go), it's a long journey and Go’s minimalistic approach actually… works. I assume it could probably help to avoid out of memory if you could experiment it and my finding that Go consumes less memory and gain better performance in various benchmark found on the web.

surely Go is faster than PHP as well as any compiled language is often faster than script-based ones.

static typing languages like Go are also often faster than dynamic typing languages as well as the strong type system of Go also helps a lot.

Go is a more strong competitor for Java than PHP and Python IMHO.
