 [2014-07-26 00:53 UTC] adamw at happyassassin dot net
I've been hitting a fairly reproducible crash in the PHP 5.5 Zend opcache, when accessing the OwnCloud 7 update page (which is displayed the first time you access an OwnCloud installation after upgrading OwnCloud - it updates the database for the new OC release).

I'll include a backtrace of the crash (the backtrace is from my 'live' OC deployment and was with PHP 5.5.14, but I've verified that a clean install with PHP 5.5.15 also hits the crash). The affected code in OwnCloud is (though you may need some familiarity with the OC codebase to work out where all the stuff it calls comes from). I have the bug reproduced with a fresh deployment of Fedora 20 and OwnCloud on a disposable test system, and I can provide remote shell access to that system for any dev interested in trying to debug this issue.

I have also reported this issue to OwnCloud at , where there are some more specific details about exactly how to reproduce it (basically, install Fedora 20, install a web server environment including the PHP opcache, do a minimal initial deployment of OwnCloud 6, then update it to OwnCloud 7, access the OC deployment - which will direct you to the update page - and then refresh the page a few times). Remi Collet (Fedora PHP maintainer) suggested to me that it probably constitutes a bug in PHP any time vaguely sane PHP code causes a crash in the opcache like this, so I thought reporting it to PHP would also make sense.

Actual result:

Sorry, I gave the wrong link to the affected OwnCloud code. That's the code that actually *runs* the database update. I have actually seen the crash occur in the middle of a database upgrade (which is obviously bad), but the consistent reproducer I have is when just looking at the page which notifies you an upgrade is needed - it reads "ownCloud will be updated to version 7.0.0.
Please make sure that the database, the config folder and the data folder have been backed up before proceeding.", and has a "Start update" button. That code is in , particularly see the checkUpgrade() function on line 286.
 [2014-07-26 06:44 UTC] adamw at happyassassin dot net
Remi Collet seems to have spotted the code in OwnCloud that triggers the problem: it's the function clearOpcodeCache() in lib/private/util.php , . If I comment out the `// Opcache (PHP >= 5.5)` lines there, the crash stops happening. Somehow, OC manually resetting the opcache at that particular point is causing it to crash.

That function is called only by lib/private/config.php , when it's changing config file values. So I believe this is triggered when lib/base.php 's checkUpgrade() function does this, on line 290:

	$oldTheme = OC_Config::getValue('theme');
	OC_Config::setValue('theme', '');

that calls setValue() in config.php , and setValue() calls writeData(), and writeData() calls clearOpcodeCache() , and boom.

Can you still reproduce this crash with any of the actively
supported PHP versions[1]?
