Let’s check out this error and see how our Support Engineers fix it.
How we fix segmentation fault in Laravel?
In Laravel, running commands in the Artisan console often leads to segfault error. Artisan is the command-line interface included in Laravel.
1. Error in Laravel setup
Sometimes, running commands in artisan console show segfault error. If this situation recurs, our Support Engineers autoload the composer. Hence, we run the following commands.
composer dump-autoload composer update ./artisan cache:clear
These commands re-read the composer.json file and update it. Hence, it resolves any error in the setup. And thereby fixes the segfault error.
2. PHP error
As Laravel is a PHP based platform, PHP errors can also result in segfault error.
This can be PHP modules or memory limits on the server. Our Support Engineers check the PHP settings in the server. Thereby, we ensure that PHP settings are not leading to segfault error.
3. Running Laravel in outdated chroot environment
Recently, one of our Plesk customers tried to create an artisan console in a chroot environment. But running command in this console ended up in segfault error.
Our Support Engineers checked and found an incorrectly configured chroot environment. So, we downloaded the latest version of
Later, we added permissions for it and executed the script.
chmod +x update_chroot.sh
We also ensured to remove all the old templates. Finally, we added all the required files for the new chroot template.
