Disable PHP-FPM

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

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 "installdir/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/mod_mpm_event.so
    
  • Enable the mpm_prefork module by uncommenting its LoadModule directive:

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

    LoadModule php7_module  modules/libphp7.so
    
  • Restart Apache:

    $ sudo installdir/ctlscript.sh restart apache
    
  • Stop PHP-FPM:

    $ sudo installdir/ctlscript.sh 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 installdir/php/scripts/ctl.sh installdir/php/scripts/ctl.sh.disabled
