Socket fails to be created:
— in error log:
2022/05/16 23:59:07 [crit] 9457#9457: *1 connect() to unix:/var/php-nginx/165273053211384.sock/socket failed (2: No such file or directory) while connecting to upstream, client:, server:, request: “GET / HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “fastcgi://unix:/var/php-nginx/165273053211384.sock/socket:”, host: “”

this is when I use the php default options for fCGId/

Problem 2:
if I instead switch to the fpm settings, it creates the same port number as the last site, which conflicts, so I have to manually edit it in both the nginx config AND the /etc/php/7.4/fpm/pool.d/numbered file] listen = localhost:8001

This happens on recent sites. Older sites I have on same server work fine.
I should add: i have multiple versions of php, but i set 7.4 as the default. i checked that the configs have the correct version.

This is old problem yes also on centos7 , apache php fpm i have to change manually.
But i didn’t update vmin to later version so i don’t know or this or other problem (socket related) is solved. Multiple php fpm remi here.
