Now that you have gone through the whole guide and you have installed and created all of the files needed for your installation, you will need to restart NGINX and PHP-FPM. After you restart both services it will be up and working. You will have NGINX running Fast-CGI with PHP-FPM. Your Installation will be running on all separate UNIX Sockets with separate owners per socket ensuring a more secure environment. Furthermore, your NGINX Setup will be fast and furious. In my own speed tests I’ve conducted, my site running on NGINX vs. My Site Running on Apache, my NGINX site was over 3x faster in both response and action. All while on a small 256MB Virtual Server, which in my opinion is ridiculously awesome!
Here is a quick Command to restart Both NGINX and PHP-FPM
service nginx restart; service php5-fpm restart
If there was no error that popped up, you can now go to your domain that you have setup and you will be running good old NGINX and PHP-FPM.
Just to reiterate, this works and needs nothing else, you can change things to better suit your environment though there is almost nothing else that you need to get the services up and running. Secondly, I have not conveniently left something out of this document. At more than 2500 words, I think I gave too much insight, though I hope this helps.
I would also like to say Thank you to my fellow Rackers, in particular Patrick Cantu, without our bickering about if this could be done, I would have never thought about doing this nor would I have ever done it. I would also like to say thank you to the people over at DotDeb. You people are what make the Open Source Community a great place to develop.
