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: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

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 installdir/ restart apache
  • Stop PHP-FPM:

      $ sudo installdir/ 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/ installdir/php/scripts/
