Install Nginx/PHP-FPM on Fedora 29/28, CentOS/RHEL 7.5/6.10 - Comment Page: 5

This is guide howto install Nginx with PHP 7.2.12 and PHP-FPM on Fedora 29/28/27, CentOS 7.5/6.10 and Red Hat (RHEL) 7.5/6.10. PHP-FPM is easier to use and configure than FastCGI and some tests says that PHP-FPM is even much more efficient than FastCGI. Nginx (engine x) is a robust, small and high performance http server, reverse proxy server and also mail proxy server. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. 1.

    1. I have enabled remi and remi-php55 and still am not getting any packages for php-fpm or php-common – centos 6.5 and I am tearing my hair out.

      The last attempt of an install brought up the package errors but still showed me an nginx page on the site FE, more frustrating that a straight up fail ;)

      Any help or guidance you can give?

      • Hi bungle,

        Could you post those errors here and output of following commands:

        yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php55 repolist
        yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php55 list all |grep -e php-fpm -e php-common
    2. Please could you tell me how to set up Drupal 7 clean url for above configuration. Centos, Nginx, php-fp, and Drupal 7
      thank you!

    3. Hi, thanks so much !!!

      BIG help, went smooth

      I am happy to try nginx, it is very fast !!! indeed !!!

      Ps:I am looking for a job, if you can help me, please do, I have a family and I am not ashamed to ask for help. I got a kid now and things in Brazil are tuff :(
      thks again

    4. Hi, When i updated to php 5.5.12 after that my site facing slow processing.

      I already tried to uninstall php 5.5.12 and installed lower version still nothing comes good. Please help me out.

      php-fpm taking 20% process of each pool process.

      Total cpu usage is 80-95% us now.

      before it was low. load went 15-min 5 to 30 .

      • Hi tom,

        I just checked PHP 5.5.12 changelog and there is not big changes on PHP-FPM. Problem might be also some other PHP package than FPM. It’s is of course hard to say without seeing/testing your config files and PHP scripts. Strange thing is that, if you downgraded older versions and same problem still exists.

        Did you changed any configs?
        Is it possible to reboot your server? Normally reboot is not of course needed, but sometimes it’s good to see what happens when every services is restarted.

    5. I did rebooted 2 times. I uninstalled-installed php 10 times.

      I didn’t changed any config.

      okay. Here is my php-fpm.conf

      listen =
      user = nginx
      group = nginx
      request_slowlog_timeout = 5s
      slowlog = /var/log/php-fpm/slowlog-site.log

      pm.start_servers = 8
      pm.min_spare_servers = 8
      pm.max_spare_servers = 20
      pm.max_requests = 20000
      listen.backlog = -1
      pm.status_path = /status
      request_terminate_timeout = 300s
      rlimit_files = 131072
      rlimit_core = unlimited

    6. I’m using OMV 1.4 version.

      WordPress with Kommiku.

      High traffic Site.

      sar says before update php load was only 3-5 == 15-min and for 1 min 1-2 .

      After update load is 30 == 1 min and 15 min 31

      • Hi tom,

        Thank you! Your configs looks totally okay. I can’t say directly what is wrong/problem, but here is a few additional questions to get more background information about this situation:

        Did you updated from PHP 5.5.11 to PHP 5.5.12?

        Do you have any caching enabled (nginx, apc, memcache, etc.)? If yes, is it working normally?

        Do you see any (strange) errors on nginx, php-fpm, db or other logs?

        Could you also post output of following commands:

        uname -a
        rpm -qa php\* mysql\* Maria\* maria\* |sort
    7. I’m using Centos 6.5

      Yes, Now i can’t re-installed 5.5.11 its not available :(
      Its give me latest version.

      Result of uname -a

      Linux sd-55593 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Nov 22 03:15:09 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      Result of 2nd command


    8. only php-fpm said its taking too much time to load some files.

      Nginx and php-fpm Okay. No strange log. :)

      mysql log is Okay.

    9. Hi tom,

      If we think this situation and what we/I know. You upgraded PHP and load jumps to really high, you downgraded back to earlier version and it doesn’t help. This is actually really hard to debug because there is not any errors or other strange things.

      So here is a few options:

      1. Problem might be just PHP-FPM (this is unlikely, because the situation will continue same with the previous version and configs are same).
      2. Any installed/updated PHP modules might cause this problem.
      3. It may be that the problem is not necessarily in PHP itself. Problem might be in PHP code also.

      One more question, what WordPress version you use?

      What I recommend next:

      Check php-fpm slowlog, anything interesting there?

      Then you could disable/remove all not used PHP-modules. I think that at least following modules are not necessary (I assume that, this setup uses only mysql and you haven’t any memcache caching enabled):

      If you know that your site uses some of listed modules, then of course do not disable/remove them. If you have some caching enabled, could you check that is it working properly?

      Then you can enable PHP errors, warnings and notices (logging). And then you might get some interesting info, what happens during PHP script execution.

      As it looks like everything is as it should be, there is no errors and everything looks good, but PHP script execution take too long (which cause high load), then next step is start debugging code to find functions which cause this. WordPress core is (should be) PHP 5.5 compatible, but all plugins, templates etc. might not be PHP 5.5 compatible.

    10. I didn’t use these modules. I don’t know how those works.

      But phpinfo function show these are enabled.


      I tried to debug my custom php code. But no warning/error/notices show. Its uses GLOB() function. Its working fine.

      WordPress is Latest 3.9.1

      Thanks for your help. I will check it.

      • Hi tom,

        PHP 5.5.13 is released, you could try to update your PHP again, to see is there any difference between PHP 5.5.12 and PHP 5.5.13. Hopefully that solve your problem. Let me know what happens.

    11. Thanks it fixed.

      I forget i did install

      yum -y groupinstall Desktop

      after uninstall desktop everything works fine. My Cpu load went to Normal thanks JR

      yum clean all

      • Hi tom,

        You are welcome and I’m very happy hear that the removing desktop fixed it, excellent!

    12. Hi.Thanks for the article, but I am having some problems. When I enter, the browser displays a “File not found”. I created index.html file in the same directory and display it. So the problem with php, but I do not understand how to fix it.Can do you please help?

      • Hi V_ra,

        Could you post output of following commands on your server:

        netstat -tulpn |grep 9000
        ls -la /usr/share/nginx/html

        Then could you post rows from your access and error logs related to this problem?

        Btw. you shouldn’t set root inside location blocks, it’s valid, but you set same root earlier on your config and it should be enough.
