Issues with new FPM support and Remi FPM version


Firstly thank you for the update.

Now I have a issue with multiple php support and FPM

I have setup fpm from the standard centos 7 version and that one works php v5.4.16

I have also setup remi repo multiple versions as setup via: PHP v 5.6 and v7

Installed FPM via yum install php70-php-fpm and php56-php-fpm

But virtualmin only uses the standard dist version php v5.6. Virtualmin multiple php version recheck does see the correct php version only the FPM is not set correct.

From the panel The following PHP versions are available : 5.4.16 (/bin/php-cgi), 5.5.38 (/bin/php55-cgi), 5.6.30 (/bin/php56-cgi), 7.0.16 (/bin/php70-cgi) PHP-FPM support is available on this system.

Needs work


Right now, Virtualmin only supports a single PHP version when using FPM mode - and that will be the version used by the distro-provided FPM package.

Thank you for the info I changed it to a feature request then.

Long term we will probably support this, but it will be a while since we're still nailing down bugs in the current single-version FPM support.

Has there been any movement on this? The php70-php-fpm benchmarks seem to put 5.4 to shame and if we want that type of speed increase for WP sites it sure would be nice to have this option sooner than later. Even if we could specify to only use 7 for example.

Sorry not yet, it might be some time before we're able to do that. There's still some FPM issues we're working through in the current release, and a number of neat new features for the upcoming release we're working on as well.

Also, note that we don't officially support third party repos due to problems we've seen with them.

However, one of the things we're going to look into is doing this through the SCL repo -- and that same feature could be used for folks using REMI (even if that's not a repo we officially support).
