On my development machine I set the following configuration for JIT (no AVX available):


opcache-gui.php executes after apache start.

When prewarming some scripts from one of our applications PHP crashes with access violation.

One example line is:


On the server machine (with avx, jit=1205) our application runs fine (prewarming etc.)

The only solution on the dev machine was to disable JIT completely.

With disabled JIT our applications ran fine.

- Windows 10 64bit Pro on Celeron G1840 (no AVX)
- Apache 2.46 64bit from apachelounge
- php 8 beta2 64bit thread safe from QA download
- php loaded as a module with php_module

Actual result:
Crash dump follows:

-Summary: Access violation Crash of PHP 8 +Summary: opcache.jit setting not documented -Status: Open +Status: Verified -Type: Bug +Type: Documentation Problem
 [2020-08-24 16:29 UTC]
The meaning of opcache.jit is changed as of PHP 8.0.0beta1; now it
basically accepts "function", "tracing" (the default) and "off".
Since "0205" is no longer accepted, the default is used, and so
the crash has the same root cause as bug #80014.

I'm changing this to documentation problem, because the change of
opcache.jit doesn't seem to be documented.
 [2020-08-24 16:33 UTC]
Well, that's not quite right.  The old numeric flags are still
supported, but "0205" is interpreted as actual, and as such
rejected.  You could use "205" instead.

I tried the solution with 


and got

Setting it to 


disabled it and apps are running fine.

IMHO it is really difficult to get our applications tested against PHP 8.

We as users are asked to test our software in the prerelease phase from alpha1 to RC5. But we have no information how to configure the new features.

Is there a beta version of the documentation containing the new configuration flags, the incompatibilities and deprecations and the new features?

For me it is even not clear if I should specify the value of opcache.jit in doublequotes or not.

The problem with not AVX-capable hardware still remains and is not transparent for the user.

Please provide the beta documentation or integrate the new stuff in

 [2020-08-25 17:32 UTC]
It's pretty strange that you get an error with opcache.jit=205;
that does exactly what it should for me.  The error message has
apparently not been updated since the latest changes, though.

Anyhow, it doesn't matter whether the INI value is enclosed in
double-quotes or not.

All relevant information is supposed to be contained in
