Hi,

make sure that APCu is actually loaded / enabled within PHP.


#3

This is the (hopefully) relevant section of the phpinfo:


#4

Does the received error message in your logs contains something about cron?

If yes you need to put apc.enable_cli=1 into /etc/php5/cli/php.ini


#5

I guess not.
I copied the content as is.


#6

I think the:

twice with 30 sec inbetween, never since

shows that those where coming from cron or the occ command line. To prevent those you need to follow the instruction above.


#7

This would not impact any other aspect of my server's configuration?
If I can add this without any (unrelated) impacts I would be happy to add the line and check back in around 24 hours to see if this topic has been resolved.


#8

That probably needs a research on your own on your favorite search engine.


#9

I have only just got around to setting up a cron job over the default Ajax option.
So as far as I understand I should have triggered chron.php every time I (re)loaded a page.
Doesn't this mean I would have triggered more entries in the error log?


#10

The differences are described in the documentation:

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/9.1/admin_manual/configuration_server/background_jobs_configuration.html#cron-jobs

So yes, if you now configure "Cron" within the GUI and configuring a system cron which calls the cron.php you're getting this logentry at each cron run until you're configuring the mentioned php.ini option.


#11

You installed Memcache APCu too?, or only the PHP APCu?. You need booth.


#12

I have only installed the packages as described before (only php5-apcu).
This is according to the documentation.
I have left it to do it's thing for a while and have not encountered another log entry of the same kind.
This leads me to believe that it has nothing to do with the cron jobs.


#13

OK, i had access with remove and reinstall APCu like this

apt-get remove php5-APCu
apt-get install php-pear php5-dev
pecl install APCu

and
'memcache.local' => '\OC\Memcache\APCu', # \ take this in php config


#14

Two (2) of \ this in php-config. it was important in my config!.


#15

Just did a write-up about the message if it contains a cli entry in the log output:


#16

I guess this command "apt-get install php5-apcu" may cause some trouble.

What I am going to do is set enable=1 in the "remi-php56" of the file /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo. Use the yum install -y php-ecl-apcu to install APCu, then APCu module might keep the same compatible version with the PHP and run fully functional.


#17

apt-get install php5-apcu
