running fast-cgi

hello -

a couple of days ago i attempted to “clean up” my php installations, trying to migrate everything over from 5.4 to 5.6. there were a couple of rogue epel/Remi versions of php out there from prior upgrade attempts in the distant past, but now that is all cleaned up.

my situation now is that last week I could run the command:

/bin/ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep '/usr/bin/php-cgi';

and i could see many processes running as fast-cgi. but ever since i upgraded php, none of these are showing.

so today for fun i created a new virtual-server, and switched back & forth several times between:

CGI wrapper (run as virtual server owner)

and

FCGId (run as virtual server owner)

but this does not seem to affect anything.

any suggestions where i go from here? (other than back to sacking groceries, please).
