Hosting PHP Apps on Apache using PHP-FPM

Here are notes from some research I did a while back on using php-fpm with Apache and Nginx. dalescott.net will likely never reach traffic levels where it would benefit, so I’m staying with Apache 2.2 and mod_php for now.

php-fpm

  • http://php-fpm.org
    • project site, code now included in php
  • http://php.net/manual/en/install.fpm.php
    • discusses fpm but does not include specific install or config instructions (some posts though)

Apache

  • Google: apache+mod_proxy+fcgi+php
  • Google: apache+php+php-fpm+freebsd
  • TODO: add references etc to blog post on same topic
