OPCache causing Apache to Crash

  • | 1780 points

    Hello Everyone!

    I'm attempting to set up opcache. It seems to work fine until I access the site locally. Let me explain.

    My current setup consists of a windows machine running laragon using apache. I enabled the opcache extension for php. My friend accesses my wordpress website using a DDNS address setup by my Asus router and everything is fine. No matter what he does, it works.

    To avoid having to setup wordpress to work with multiple domains, I use the same DDNS address. However, I am accessing the site on the same network that the windows machine that is running Laragon is on as well. Doing this causes apache to crash only when opcache is enabled.

    I know there is a way to configure opcache and maybe that's what I need to do? Or maybe I just need to clear the cache. I tried doing some research and couldn't seem to find anything.

    Using PHP 7.1.11 gives me an internal server error. Nothing Wordpress will not load with or without opcache enabled. I suspect this is an issue with a plugin I've installed. We'll see what I can come up with.

    If you xdebug, you have to enable it after opcache (https://ayesh.me/xdebug-php-72-windows#troubleshoot)

    If you are running xdebug, then you will have to enable PHP opcache. For this you will have to add this to your php.ini file.

    opcache.memory_consumption=128 (for caching all compiled files)


    opcache.max_accelerated_files=4000 (by default can cache 2000 files)




    The last command will enable Opcache, while the above commands are its default configuration.

Looks like your connection to Laragon was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
