Restart php

You should know how to restart php better than i do. It depends on which php sapi you're using is, and how you run your php.

  • lighttpd or any webserver + mod_fastcgi --> php-fastcgi: just restart php itself, not the webserver
Restart php with daemontools
(in case you run php with daemontools, do)
# svc -d php && svc -u php; echo $?

(or in case you're using gentoo daemontools, do)
# svcinit php restart

(in any other case, you should know better than i do.)
  • any webserver + mod_php: restart the webserver. something like:
Restart php with apache
(in case you're using apache, do)
# /etc/init.d/apache* restart

(or do)
# /etc/init.d/httpd* restart

(in any other case, you should know better than i do.)

Make sure XCache is working

  • if you're working with php-fcgi, simply run
Check XCache from command line
$ php-fcgi -v
