This post is about Opcache with PHP 7… arrrrg

So I have Centos 6.8 and WHM 60 with Apache 2.4.and php 7… But little did I know that by using suphp as a handler that I am unable to use any caching like acpu! I am using php-fpm and a WordPress cache plug in Cache Enabler but ya it’s been a mystery and couldn’t figure out until I googled “suphp acpu opcache”. So I still get very fast website but maybe I should have looked into the caching part before I went and tried to do configuration and pull my hair out lol.





Updated screenshot of Opcache


Well I updated to PHP 7.1 and the cache is now working!! Yay! One thing I did was use the MPM_prefork instead of MPM_event, so maybe that has something to do with it as well…
