php – MAMP time between seeing live changes

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m using MAMP server and wondering why changes I make to the PHP files are not instantaneously displayed when I page refresh (in browser). Is there a way to set this up? There are no caching settings on MAMP. Either I have to wait 20 seconds or stop and restart the server.

How to&Answers:

The solution is uncommenting lines in the php.ini file which can be found in /MAMP Directory/bin/php/php5.5.3/conf/php.ini

Comment out Opcache:

[OPcache]
;zend_extension="/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.3/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20121212/opcache.so"
;  opcache.memory_consumption=128
;  opcache.interned_strings_buffer=8
;  opcache.max_accelerated_files=4000
;  opcache.revalidate_freq=60
;  opcache.fast_shutdown=1
;  opcache.enable_cli=1

Documentation (yes it started in 5.5):
