Disabling OPcache

OPcache stores compiled PHP code in memory, which helps accelerate performance. By default, OPcache is enabled on Turbo accounts. However, you can disable it if necessary (for example, for testing or debugging purposes).

To disable OPcache, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
    If you do not know how to log in to your cPanel account, please see this article.
  2. In the Software and Services section of the cPanel home screen, click Select PHP Version.
  3. In the list of PHP extensions, clear the opcache check box.
  4. Click Save. OPcache is now disabled.
    To re-enable OPcache, select the opcache check box, and then click Save.
