The Zend OPcache

php scripts not updating?  FTP a new php file and it doesn’t update for the browser?

The issue could be the OPcache enabled on the server.

In my case I have changed the frequency that it checks for updated files.

Some good examples here:

default value cannot be empty

Moving a site from one server to another that was php, java & mySQL I started to get an error that the default value cannot be empty.

This was a simple table and the offending column was a column for adding data to later as a message to the user.

The data type was LONGTEXT with a Default of None.

Not sure what was different between servers but I changed this to VARCHAR, 255 with the default value of NULL

I also had an error of: Data truncated for column ‘asap’ at row 1

This Column was an ENUM using no/yes. I changed the default to NULL instead of as defined.

WordPress Error Reporting

In your wp-config file add the following just before the:

/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL);
ini_set('error_log', dirname(__FILE__) . '/error_log.txt');

http/2 protocol

Our Aim

We wish to have all our customers on the HTTP/2 protocol by mid 2018

Google ranks sites with SSL certificates (https) higher then the old http and an SSL certificate is required to utilise HTTP/2


PHP & JAVA run most small business websites across the world wide web including popular CMS Sofware like WordPress, Joomla, Magento and of coarse our own VRCMS .

These cms frameworks depend on PHP to be up to date and secure. We currently support PHP versions 5.5, 5.6, 7.0.

5.5 has reached end of life and we will not support it from December 2017.

What is HTTP/2

HTTP/2 (originally named HTTP/2.0) is a major revision of the HTTP network protocol used by the World Wide Web. It was developed from the earlier experimental SPDY protocol, originally developed by Google.
