For testing I recently switched from PHP 8.0 alpha3 to 8.0beta1 in an otherwise unchanged environment under Windows Server 64 bit.

When trying to show a page or prewarm any script, the following error is shown in Apache error log (the whole sequence of server start and crash):

[Wed Aug 05 11:20:57.000616 2020] [ssl:warn] [pid 2332:tid 588] AH01873: Init: Session Cache is not configured [hint: SSLSessionCache]

This sequence is repeated multiple times, always exited with status 3221225477.

PHP is unusable, no further testing possible.

When switching back to 8.0 alpha3, everything works again as before.
- Windows server 2019 64bit Standard in a VM under HyperV
- Apache 2.43 64bit from apachelounge
- php 8 beta1 64bit thread safe from QA download
- php loaded as a module with php_module

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

Thanks!  This is apparently a tracing JIT issue.  Please try with

 [2020-08-06 13:06 UTC] buschmann at nidsa dot net
When set


the opcache_gui and prewarm and a quick test of the application seem OK now.
(Only tested in httpd -X mode for now)

It seems I cannot provide more info to come to the root cause.

Thanks for investigating.

Is this still an issue with PHP 8.0.1?
