hhvm 3.29.1-1~jessie

Upgrading to HHVM 3.29.1-1~jessie seems to have broken HHVM on my Debian server.

The HHVM process would start with no obvious errors and would show up fine in ps output, but would not listen on the usual port. I tried a few alternatives but after an hour or so of messing around I gave up.

Given the divergence of hhvm from PHP there seems to be little point trying to maintain a reference system any more; I have taken down the server & archiving this site for a few months, after which I’ll take it down too.
