Disable PHP-FPM

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

To disable an already enabled PHP-FPM configuration, follow these steps:

  • Disable the mpm_event module by commenting the LoadModule directive:

      #LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/
  • Enable the mpm_prefork module by uncommenting its LoadModule directive:

      LoadModule mpm_prefork_module modules/
  • Enable the php7 module by uncommenting its LoadModule directive:

      LoadModule php7_module  modules/
  • Restart Apache:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart apache
  • Stop PHP-FPM:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop php-fpm
  • Disable the PHP-FPM service: Depending on your installation type, run the following commands:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages):

        $ sudo mv /etc/monit/conf.d/php-fpm.conf /etc/monit/conf.d/php-fpm.conf.disabled
        $ sudo gonit reload
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):

        $ sudo mv /opt/bitnami/php/scripts/ /opt/bitnami/php/scripts/
