Invalidating the OPcache in PHP 5.5

Saturday, October 19, 2013

The Zend Optimizer+ has been integrated into PHP core with the 5.5 release, which, according to the RFC page, has many advantages over APC. It has been renamed OPcache, can be enabled with a simple ini setting, and since it's in the core, it offers better version compatibility. Unfortunately it also includes my only gripe with APC, invalidating the cache is much harder than what one would think.
