Installing NGINX and PHP-FPM - Setup for PHP-FPM
The steps in this article guide you through adding pool information to the PHP-FPM setup that you previously completed.
When you entered the command to install PHP-FPM, the system created a
default configuration for PHP-FPM. This default configuration might have
included a directory for your sockets to reside in while they are
active. If it did not, you must create this directory. In the following
example, the sockets are placed in the
Use the following command to create the directory:
mkdir -p /var/run/php5-fpm/
Sockets automatically spawn in this if you are using the virtualhost setup and PHP-FPM pool template provided. No more action is required on your part.
To complete the setup, move to the
where you will set up the different UNIX sockets on which PHP-FPM will
Note: For your system to function properly, you must create a new pool for every virtual host that you set up.
The pool files should follow this naming convention:
Following is a template for the pool files. Replace all instances of DOMAINNAME with your domain name.
[DOMAINNAME] listen = /var/run/php5-fpm/DOMAINNAME.socket listen.backlog = -1 listen.owner = nginx listen.group = www-data listen.mode=0660 ; Unix user/group of processes user = (THE USERNAME OF THE USER THAT OWNS THE SITE FILES) group = www-data ; Choose how the process manager will control the number of child processes. pm = dynamic pm.max_children = 75 pm.start_servers = 10 pm.min_spare_servers = 5 pm.max_spare_servers = 20 pm.max_requests = 500 ; Pass environment variables env[HOSTNAME] = $HOSTNAME env[PATH] = /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin env[TMP] = /tmp env[TMPDIR] = /tmp env[TEMP] = /tmp ; host-specific php ini settings here ; php_admin_value[open_basedir] = /var/www/DOMAINNAME/htdocs:/tmp
