I do a re check due to problem on php cgi/fpm/mod .

The Re-Check Configuration give me the following :

Why I have this message No PHP-FPM packages were found on this system ?

Thanks for your help,

I do a file switch with https://github.com/virtualmin/virtualmin-gpl/commits/master/php-lib.pl after reading https://www.virtualmin.com/node/55788 and now The following PHP-FPM versions are available on this system : 5.6.40 7.0.4 7.2.19 7.3.6

Great, I have to check now if it’s work. Any other thing to do ?

Those updates will be part of the next Virtualmin version, though manually applying that should work in the meantime.

Let us know if you see any issues with that though!

In fact I see in one of the website setings :
PHP-FPM Configuration > Manage PHP Configuration

But I activate the PHP 7.3 in PHP Versions config, and in fact i can see from the website than the PHP 7.3.6-1+ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 is used …
Is the Manage PHP Configuration display is wrong ?

ls: cannot access ‘/etc/php/5.6/fpm/pool.d/14604952219640.conf’: No such file or directory

The right file is in the right folder : /etc/php/7.3/fpm/pool.d/14604952219640.conf

It look a display error on PHP-FPM Configuration : Manage PHP Configuration interface. Any update for this ?


Hello Andrey, so judging by your comment we should just sit back and wait for you guys to push the next version of VirtualMin? We just apt-get update and php-fpm will be installed, configured and understood by VirtualMin? I really don’t wanna break my server by using 3rd party repo or something and go through the struggle of configuring things by hand ;p

Thanks. Oh, and any ETA on that next update?

Again, really thank you. You guys are awesome!

I’m also very interested in this.
@Mike Castro Demaria how did you do it manually? I assume it has something to do with this commit:
But where do I edit those files and make the changes happen? Simply editing the files (/usr/share/webmin/virtual-server/lang/en, /usr/share/webmin/virtual-server/php-lib.pl and /usr/share/webmin/virtual-server/virtual-server-lib-funcs.pl) doesn’t seem to work.
Or do I need to do anything else?

EDIT: nevermind, I was looking at the wrong commit, wasn’t I? There are tons of them regarding multiple PHP versions and FPM support. :frowning:

My question still applies: how do I make the changes in the code happen?
