Warning.png Warning:

SME v9 is no longer supported. v10 has php-fpm built in. Please refer to this page for more information.

Contrib 9:
The latest version of smeserver-php-fpm is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.


This contribs allow you to run php-fpm for php version from 5.6 to 7.3 on CentOS 6 (SME9). This contrib will likely not be needed directly for your own usage, unless you know what you want to do with it, but rather called by another contribs needing a specific version of php running.


yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-php-fpm

you then need to issue the usual

signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

or you can do

signal-event webapps-update
service php-fpm start
service php56-php-fpm start
service php70-php-fpm start
service php71-php-fpm start
service php72-php-fpm start
service php73-php-fpm start


you can list the available configuration with the following command :

config show php-fpm
config show php56-php-fpm
config show php70-php-fpm
config show php71-php-fpm
config show php72-php-fpm
config show php73-php-fpm

Some of the properties are not shown, but are defaulted in a template or a script. You can set those values for the php-fpm version you want, or you can set it against a particular share folder. Empty or missing property in the db means default value is used.

Here a more comprehensive list with default and expected values :

property default values
status enabled enabled,disabled
MemoryLimit 128M
MaxExecutionTime 30
MaxInputTime 60
AllowUrlFopen off
MaxChildren 15
PostMaxSize 10M
UploadMaxFilesize 10M
DisableFunctions system,show_source, symlink,exec,dl,shell_exec,passthru,phpinfo,escapeshellarg,escapeshellcmd
config setprop php72-phpfpm  PHPMemoryLimit 256M
signal-event webapps-update

more values specifics for shares:

property default values information
PHPVersion 56,70,71,72,73 should be set one value
PHPCustomPool string use of a custom pool defined elsewhere, see use my own pool section. Keep it empty to use the share specific pool.
DynamicContent disabled enabled,disabled need to be enabled
db accounts setprop SHARENAME PHPVersion 72 PHPMemoryLimit 256M
signal-event webapps-update

For contribs creators

you can either call an existing php-pool or create your own one. As an example you can check smeserver-nextcloud. The following template will make a dedicated php 7.1 pool with php setting adapted for Nextcloud.

vim /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf/15Nextcloud


if ($PHP_VERSION eq '71'){
  if (($nextcloud{'status'} || 'disabled') eq 'enabled'){

    my $memory_limit = ($nextcloud{MemoryLimit} || '512M');
    $memory_limit .= 'M' if ($memory_limit =~ m/^\d+$/);
    my $id = 'nextcloud';
    $OUT .=<<_EOF;

Of course you will need to process both httpd.conf, php-fpm specific version and restart both httpd-e-smith and the php-fpm version you use.

You will also need specific code to create the destination directories for php usage : see /etc/e-smith/events/actions/php-pool-dirs from this contrib

Warning.png Warning:
On initial installation, smeserver-php-fpm does not start php pools and signal-event webapps-update does only a reload which will not start stopped services.

So pay attention you need to start if not already started on initial install.

Create and use my own pool

using the default template : /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/php-fpm.d/custom.conf , you can set your own pool doing:

db php set MYPOOLNAME pool Version 72 status enabled

here are the accepted supplementary properties, as always missing or empty means using default.

property default values information
status enabled enabled,disabled
MemoryLimit 128M
MaxExecutionTime 30
MaxInputTime 60
AllowUrlFopen off
MaxChildren 15
PostMaxSize 10M
UploadMaxFilesize 10M
file_upload enabled
DisabledFunctions system,show_source,symlink,exec,dl,shell_exec,passthru,phpinfo,escapeshellarg,escapeshellcmd
User www
Group www
DisplayErrors disabled
LogErrors disabled

you will then need two httpd.conf custom template fragment to use your pool. You will need to change MYPOOL to what you want

mkdir -p  /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/
vim /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/98mypoolusage
<Directory /home/e-smith/files/ibays/test/html>
    Options None
    Options +Indexes
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.shtml index.htm index.html
    AddHandler phpMYPOOL-fastcgi .php
    AllowOverride All
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all

then just do signal-event webapps-update


yum remove smeserver-php-fpm  php-fpm
