I am really really frustrated trying to get virtualmin OFF Fast_cgi and ONto php-fpm. I’ve been trying to get this done now for over a week now and nothing seems to be getting me closer. phpinfo() works but can’t get wordpress going. Looked at tons of posts about rewrite rules. From looking at the logs I think fast CGI is still not disabled. I have removed the fast_cgi startup script from /etc/init.d, edited /usr/share/webmin/virtualmin-nginx/virtualmin-nginx-lib.pl and commented the start_php_fcgi_server_command on line 1710, put return; statements in the subs related to starting fast_cgi in that script, yet the logs reflect fast_cgi still runs.
I really hate to start over from scratch again (install w/vmin, nginx module, firewall security plugin, domain setup, DB setup, etc etc. Takes an hour or so, and I was careful last time and am doubtful if it would do any good anyway. I saw a warning in the docs about not switching after domains are created, but no telling how old that doc is. Afaik it might be before the beta php-fpm support even existed.
I didn’t see anything in the original install concerning support for php-fpm, so I installed this guy’s module. I seem to recall stumbling across a different one that showed a radio button in the virtualmin UI for php-fpm or fast_cgi, but that tutorial / info was exclusively for an RPM / yum based (ie. non debian) OS and was pretty useless to me.

If I list processes with “ps aux | grep php” I see only the php-fpm processes running, so I presume it’s php-fpm serving up the phpinfo() page, and not fast_cgi, despite the log file output. That leads me to believe the issue is in w/vmin.
