XF 1.4 Error with Xcache after upgrade to 1.4.5


Active member
I Think this is to do with xcache considering the error but not sure how to fix.

ErrorException: Fatal Error: xcache_count(): xcache.admin.user and/or xcache.admin.pass settings is not configured. Make sure you've modified the correct php ini file for your php used in webserver. -library/Zend/Cache/Backend/Xcache.php:186
I only started getting this error after updgrade and have not changed the php.ini file. Was working fine in 1.4.4

This is what i have in the library/config.php file
$config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
Any ideas?

Ok Digging round in library/Zend/Cache/Backend/Xcache.php:186

Should i be changing the things in red now?

// Necessary because xcache_clear_cache() need basic authentification
$backup = array();
if (isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'])) {
if (isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'])) {
$backup['PHP_AUTH_PW'] = $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'];
if ($this->_options['user']) {
$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] = $this->_options['user'];
if ($this->_options['password']) {
$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'] = $this->_options['password'];

Although line 186 is this

$cnt = xcache_count(XC_TYPE_VAR);
for ($i=0; $i < $cnt; $i++) {
xcache_clear_cache(XC_TYPE_VAR, $i);

You can find xcache.ini by create phpinfo file. Find in :Additional .ini files parsed"

if there is no xcache.ini, check your php.ini if there is any xcache configuration in there.
