I'm trying to run Apache with PHP 8 JIT-compiler on Windows 10 64-bit. I did:

Downloaded and installed Apache 2.4.46 Win64 from

Downloaded and installed PHP VS16 x64 Thread Safe (2020-Nov-24 22:49:03) from:

I inserted:
LoadModule php_module "C:/[Path to PHP]/php8apache2_4.dll"
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php
into my httpd.conf

I started Apache, and browsing to local webpages works fine.

Okay, so I added to my php.ini:
which should activate the JIT-compiler.

I restarted Apache and called a local webpage and just got:

This site can’t be reached
The connection was reset.

Windows event-log shows me (I hope the translation is correct):
Name of the crashed application: httpd.exe, Version:, Timestamp: 0x5f76f6fc
Name of the crashed modul: php_opcache.dll, Version:, Timestamp: 0x5fbd7aa0
Exceptioncode: 0xc0000005
Erroroffset: 0x000000000012a298
ID of the faulty process: 0x4628
Path to the crashed appliction: C:\[Path to Apache]\bin\httpd.exe
Path to the crashed modul:: c:\[Path to PHP]\ext\php_opcache.dll

from php.ini, and Apache works fine again.

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.

Assigning to dmitry in case he can guess at the cause here.

Unfortunately, the backtrace is not enough to guess the reason of the crash.
We need some way to reproduce the failure.

What could I do? I have a VisualStudio 2013 running on the machine, might this help? Any other parameters I could try in php.ini to make it work?

I tried to debug the process httpd by VS -> Debug -> Attach to Process. 

There are 2 httpd-processes, and I get for the first:

Check what page causes the crash.
Try to reproduce the same crash, passing the script and CGI environment variables command line PHP (or PHP-CGI).
If the application doesn't use external resources (DB, etc) and doesn't contain sensitive data, you may just pack and send it to me (with instruction, how to reproduce the crash).

Otherwise, you need to track down to the problem yourself... You may catch the crash in debugger and check the PHP source position printing (char*)executor_globals.current_execute_data->func->op_array.function_name.val and executor_globals.current_execute_data->opline->lineno. Then try to isolate the function(s) involved into crash. This is not a simple task...
 [2020-12-14 13:42 UTC]
Also try to reproduce the same problem with opcache.jit=1205. If you see the same crash, try to isolate the problem with opcache.jit=1205 (it should be easier).
 [2020-12-14 15:49 UTC] martin at radiok2r dot de
Thanks for your reply and all your hints! 

It all works with opcache.jit=1205 without problems.

Without opcache.jit=1205 (no setting for opcache.jit at all in the php.ini) this php-code crashes:

	print "Hello world\r\n";
	print $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]."\r\n";

	for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	{	$b = file_exists($_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]."/index.php");		

	print "It worked";

When reducing the loop to run 50 times it works, but 100 times is too much and it crashes.

Hope this helps.

same situation,hope this bug can be solved quickly.

I wasn't able to reproduce the crash on test case from @martin.
Is it crashes on very first request (after web server start)?

I need a well reproducible test case to analyse and fix this.
Better, if it possible to reproduce the crash with CLI PHP (without Apache).
However, the problem may be especially related to Apache SAPI (ZTS or Windows ASLR).
 [2021-01-13 08:11 UTC] martin at radiok2r dot de
I changed the code for testing a bit to make it independent from the webserver:
	print "Hello world\r\n";
	for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	{	$b = file_exists("index.php");		
		print $i;

	print "It worked";

This code still crashes in Apache, but works fine with CLI.

I'm not sure what else I could do to make it reproducible for you, I already gave you the versions from Apache I'm using. What else could influence that it works for you and not for me and louisowen?
