You can manage the PHP directives on a CloudLinux server using the PHP Selector. You can manage this via cPanel >> Software/services >> Select PHP version. In this tutorial, we are going to discuss the steps to enable Xcache via cPanel for a particular account.


1) You need to check in cPanel if Xcache is enabled or not. Login to cPanel >> Software/Services >> Select PHP Version.

Enable Xcache


Also check the following directives are existing on the file “/etc/cl.selector/php.conf”

xcache.cacher     on/Off

xcache.size       –value–

xcache.stat       on/Off


2) If the directives are not existing on the file, add the following directives in the file“/etc/cl.selector/php.conf.”

Directive = xcache.cacher

Default   = On

Type      = bool

Comment   = Enable or disable opcode cache. Not available if xcache.size is 0.


Directive = xcache.size

Default   = 50M

Type      = value

Range     = 0 50M 100M

Comment   = Total amount of memory used for opcode (*.php) caching. If set to 0 – opcode caching is disabled.


Directive = xcache.stat

Default   = On

Type      = bool

Comment   = Do stat() to check if xcache setting updated.

3) No need to restart any services, go to cPanel >> Software/Services >> Select PHP Version. You will get the following result.
