HELP! php-fpm no longer working after update (nginx/Ubuntu)


#1

After updating my Ubuntu install to 14.10 (from 14.04) and EasyEngine to 3.0 my sites are coming up with a 'Bad Gateway error 502" whenever accessing php files (like my Wordpress install).

I tried several of the suggested fixes, like removing and reinstalling php and php-fpm, as well as reinstalling EasyEngine. Nothing has fixed this so far.

When checking via ps ax | grep php5-fpm there is no process running, and php-fpm is clearly not starting (or remaining running) - this seems to be the main error here.

Can someone please help me out here?

Best as I can ascertain, this is a bug in Ubuntu 14, related to the php-fpm installation. It won’t restart after an update. Has anyone come across this?

@ZinkDifferent

you can check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/php5/fpm.log for the reason behind this.

This is what I am seeing:

… and this from /var/log/php5/fpm.log:

Thank you, @harshadyeola harshadyeola, this helped me at least get php-fpm operational.

Now, I can take a look at an info.php file that I installed, but so far, the Wordpress installations in those same locations (installed with ee, initially) still only show blank, white, empty pages.

Progress, somehow. I feel we are very close.

What I’m seeing now in the specific www log is that it seems facts doesn’t want to connect:

Hi @ZinkDifferent

Please verify that argument to fastcgi_pass in location ~ \.php$ block is same value as the value listen variable in /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf

It’s been a long time, and we haven’t heard from you. It looks like your issue is resolved.

I am closing this support topic for now. Feel free to create a new support topic if you have any queries further. :slight_smile:
