PHP 7.2.0 Release Candidate 4 Released

FastCGI 进程管理器(FPM)

Table of Contents

FPM(FastCGI 进程管理器)用于替换 PHP FastCGI 的大部分附加功能,对于高负载网站是非常有用的。


  • 支持平滑停止/启动的高级进程管理功能;

  • 可以工作于不同的 uid/gid/chroot 环境下,并监听不同的端口和使用不同的 php.ini 配置文件(可取代 safe_mode 的设置);

  • stdout 和 stderr 日志记录;

  • 在发生意外情况的时候能够重新启动并缓存被破坏的 opcode;

  • 文件上传优化支持;

  • "慢日志" - 记录脚本(不仅记录文件名,还记录 PHP backtrace 信息,可以使用 ptrace或者类似工具读取和分析远程进程的运行数据)运行所导致的异常缓慢;

  • fastcgi_finish_request() - 特殊功能:用于在请求完成和刷新数据后,继续在后台执行耗时的工作(录入视频转换、统计处理等);

  • 动态/静态子进程产生;

  • 基本 SAPI 运行状态信息(类似Apache的 mod_status);

  • 基于 php.ini 的配置文件。

Init script setup

You will probably want to create an init script for your new php-fpm. Fortunately, PHP 5.3.3 provides one for you, which you should copy to your init directory and change permissions:

$ cp <php-5.3.3-source-dir>/sapi/fpm/ /etc/init.d/php-fpm
$ chmod 755 /etc/init.d/php-fpm

It requires a certain amount of setup. First of all, make sure your php-fpm.conf file is set up to  create a PID file when php-fpm starts. E.g.:
pid = /var/run/
(also make sure your php-fpm user has permission to create this file).

Now open up your new init script (/etc/init.d/php-fpm) and set the variables at the top to their relevant values. E.g.:

Your init script is now ready. You should now be able to start, stop and reload php-fpm:

$ /etc/init.d/php-fpm start
$ /etc/init.d/php-fpm stop
$ /etc/init.d/php-fpm reload

The one remaining thing you may wish to do is to add your new php-fpm init script to system start-up. E.g. in CentOS:

$ /sbin/chkconfig php-fpm on


Disclaimer: Although I did just do this on my own server about 20 mins ago, everything I've written here is off the top of my head, so it may not be 100% correct. Also, allow for differences in system setup. Some understanding of what you are doing is assumed.

the fpm process supports the USER2 signal, which is used to reload the config file.

kill -USR2 [pid]

should do the trick.

PHP-FPM is FAST - but be wary of using it while your code base is stored on NFS - under average load your NFS server will feel some serious strain. I have yet to find a work around for this bug:

Doesn't work? Enable logging!

The php-fpm.log file is a great place to fault-find errors and get to the bottom of a problem. But be sure to enable logging for your specific worker pool. Or you won't see anything!


To enable error logging for the default [www] worker pool, add this line in the [www] section of your php-fpm.conf:

catch_workers_output = yes

It is important to note that FPM is not built with the windows binaries.  Many of the guides you may find online rely on php-cgi.exe.  Unfortunately they call it FPM but this is incorrect!

The executable php-cgi.exe that is bundled with the windows binaries is a FastCGI interface but it is *not* FPM (Fastcgi Process Manager).  php-cgi.exe does not have multi-threading or concurrent request support, nor support for any of the FPM configuration options.

The only solid information I've gathered into why FPM is not available is a bug report explaining that FPM is built around fork(), which is not natively available on windows (
