  • rotatePHPRuntime(__namedParameters: RotateOptions): () => void

  • Listens to PHP events and swaps the internal PHP Runtime for a fresh one after a certain number of run() calls (which are responsible for handling HTTP requests).

    Why? Because PHP and PHP extension have a memory leak. Each request leaves the memory a bit more fragmented and with a bit less available space than before. Eventually, new allocations start failing.

    Rotating the PHP instance may seem like a workaround, but it’s actually what PHP-FPM does natively:


    • __namedParameters: RotateOptions

    Returns () => void

    cleanup function to restore

      • (): void
      • Returns void
