      I recently joined a team working on an existing (large) project based on PHP and SilverStripe.

      After installing Apache NetBeans 12.1 and importing the project, I left the IDE open while the "Background scanning of projects..." ran. It quickly reached 40% and ... hung.

      Twelve hours later it was still at 40% so I closed the IDE, and forced the scan to stop.

      After checking the web, I restarted the IDE as administrator and noticed that the background scan almost immediately jumped to 100% but then stayed that way for another 2 hours until I closed the IDE (again), removed the entire cache folder (as per other suggestions in various forums), and restarted as a standard user.

      TheĀ  background scan quickly reached 40% and again stopped increasing. After another hour I attempted to cancel the process and was greeted with a message informing me that a bug had been detected.

      The text of the two logs (UI and IDE) is attached.
