PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.
By default php does not have the cgi, FPM/FastCGI, mysql, mysqli, apache2 use flag turned on. Many packages are php aware, set the php global use flag so other applications can interact with php.
USE="php mysql mysqli apache2 fpm cgi......"
# emerge php
Fpm is a php handler. It is php daemonized.
To start the php-fpm service:
# rc-service php-fpm start
To start the php-fpm service at boot:
# rc-update add php-fpm
Php-fpm is controlled by
Change Php Fpm's User/Group
Making php-fpm workers work as the apache user makes most apache permission configurations work with out a bother.
;user = nobody ;group = nobody user = apache group = apache
Limit worker numbers to 20 max. When your server is behind a reverse proxy it doesn't need many workers.
pm.max_children = 20 pm.start_servers = 1 pm.min_spare_servers = 1 pm.max_spare_servers = 19
