    Will there soon be a PHP 5.6 package available for Debian 7 “Wheezy”? That would be nice. 🙂

    Hello,

    with recent versions of PHP5-FPM I often have version when reloading/restarting.. for example:

    # service php5-fpm start
    php5-fpm start/running, process 3309

    — PASSED

    # service php5-fpm reload

    — NO MESSAGE

    # service php5-fpm reload
    reload: Unknown instance:

    — throws some error

    killall -9 php5-fpm
    now I can only kill it, and then:
    #service php5-fpm start

    Any ideas?

    Thank yoU!

    Hi,

    Just found out I’m getting some segmentation faults both with opcache and xcache. Without cache I don’t have any problems,

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
