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
/var/run/php5-fpm/ directory. 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
/etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ directory where you will set up the different UNIX sockets on which PHP-FPM will function.
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
