That was for a couple of minutes while I was disabling PHP's APC cache.

It appears that as of PHP 5.5.x, Opcache is the preferred caching mechanism
over APC for MediaWiki:

So APC was turned off and Opcache was turned on.

One IP in particular was crawling/scraping the wiki very aggressively and
was causing PHP processes to hand for ~ 1 hour in the APC caching code of

PHP Warning:  apc_store(): GC cache entry
'wiki:diff:version:1.11a:oldid:177361:newid:188495' was on gc-list for 3601
seconds in /var/www/wiki/includes/objectcache/APCBagOStuff.php on line 62

I've banned that IP address temporarily and have turned off APC caching to
remove the errors above. Apache/PHP errors are now quiet with the exception
of the occasional poorly written client:

AH02031: Hostname www.owasp.org provided via SNI, but no hostname provided
in HTTP request
