Can I Restart PHP On My WordPress Site?

Updated on June 28, 2018

If you have a Google Cloud based account, you can restart PHP for any of your websites individually with a simple click of a button. This can come in handy if you happen to get a 502 error or if something else goes wrong. Here’s how:

  • Log in to the MyKinsta dashboard
  • Go to Sites and select the site you’d like to restart PHP on
  • Go to the Tools tab and find the “Restart PHP” section
  • Click the “Restart PHP” button

Restart PHP

Please note that restarting PHP will take about 5-10 seconds. You will receive a notification at the bottom of the screen when it is completed.

Note: You will also need to delete your full page and object cache to see the changes.
