PHP-FPM crashes using PHP 5.3.6 with Nginx

I recently spent a few hours smashing my head against my keyboard trying to figure out why PHP-FPM was dying every time I tried to load my favourite framework. The cause ended up being APC. Versions 3.1.9 and 3.1.8 don’t work properly with PHP 5.3.6 on Ubuntu 10.04 and Debian 6. I had to use APC 3.1.6 to get it to compile without errors.

Hope this saves someone an hour or two.

  1. Just wanted to lodge a ‘thanks’ for this one. Was banging my head too, and the logs weren’t giving me any help.

    Once I disabled APC it worked like a charm.

    This on Natty w/ PHP5-FPM 5.3.5-1ubuntu7.2 w/ nginx/1.0.6
