I have a web server running PHP under FPM with PHP version Here is the full info if you're interested:

I get a segfault in the same place when I enable opcache (default settings, nothing fancy). I'm running WordPress with Jetpack, and here's the line that causes the error:

I don't know why, but if I remove that line completely, execution happens right until;

where it segfaults again.

I have been trying to figure out a small script that would illustrate the problem, but I can't - I know what lines in the PHP code are the last to get executed, but I don't know why and I can't reproduce the same thing in an isolated file.

I have been able to get a stack trace with debug symbols, here it is:

Reading symbols from /usr/sbin/php-fpm7.1...Reading symbols from /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/6d/1b8d73ab820b0d911a4252da9febf10aa54f2d.debug...done.

Here's what it says about frame 0:

Please let me know what more I can provide.

P,S. this looks kinda similar to, but the stack trace is different, so I thought I'd create a new bug anyway. Sorry if it's a duplicate.

Test script:
None, but if you have a WordPress site installed, you can:
1. Install Jetpack.
2. Activate Jetpack by connecting to
3. Go to

This is enough to trigger a request that fails with a segfault.
