Got this error message

2018/03/13 22:12:41 [error] 17149#0: *7057 FastCGI sent in stderr: “PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function opcache_reset() in /path/to/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/opcache/opcache.php:72

And then created a file named opcache.php and ran it with php opcache.php


if (function_exists('opcache_reset') ) {

echo "OPCache Reset Exists\n";

} else {

echo "OPCache does not exist\n";

## output was 
OPCache does not exist

Ran php -i to get the text version of the phpinfo() function to see if PHP had OPCache installed and got nada.

php -i | grep -i opcache

Did a yum search to see if it was available in the repo and then installed it
