@girish the local_infile is the approach the app uses to load data sets for optional functionality. I'll go to the forum for OpenEMR and see if there is a way for me to manually upload the data instead of being done through the webapp UI.
@girish Embarassingly it appears ther script that I was loading the php info through had specifically set opcache.enable to Off at runtime. In the app itself it is enables and all is good. Thanks again and apologies for the unnecessary effort in pushing a new package.
@deiwee I guess you would want to run it as www-data user though to not mess with file permissions. Did you get any error messages in the log? Of course after app restart it will always take at most a minute to kick the cron according to schedule.
@jlx89 there is no internal cache. Can you just do a plain curl -v https://clonedapp.domain.com and see what is happening? Could it be that you have the domain hardcoded in your LAMP app and it's redirecting you to that location? This happens fairly often when cloning WP with misconfigured plugins.
