Enable 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.

PHP-FPM is disabled by default. To enable it, follow these steps:

  • Enable its control script:

    $ cd installdir
    $ mv php/scripts/ php/scripts/
  • Start PHP-FPM:

    $ cd installdir
    $ ./ start php-fpm
  • Enable PHP-FPM configuration in Apache. Update the installdir/apache2/conf/httpd.conf file and comment out the LoadModule directive:

    #LoadModule php7_module  modules/
  • In the same file, disable the mpm_prefork module:

    #LoadModule mpm_prefork_module modules/
  • In the same file, enable the mpm_event module:

    LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/
  • Restart Apache:

    $ cd installdir
    $ ./ restart apache
