- Plesk for Linux
After upgrading a system PHP to the version 7.x on CentOS/RHEL-based distributions, PHP-FPM configuration fails and the service cannot be started:
[root@server]# php-fpm -t
ERROR: [/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf:1] value is NULL for a ZEND_INI_PARSER_ENTRY
ERROR: Unable to include /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf from /etc/php-fpm.conf at line 1
ERROR: failed to load configuration file '/etc/php-fpm.conf'
ERROR: FPM initialization failed
The content of the file
/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf is as follows:
[root@server]# cat /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf
# Default www-pool configuration has been disabled by Plesk Panel.
# Pool configuration was saved in '/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf.saved_by_psa'.
When creating a new subscription/domain in Plesk, the operation fails with the following error message:
PLESK_ERROR: Error: phpinimng failed: configuration test '/usr/sbin/php-fpm --test' failed with code 78, and message: ERROR: [/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf:1] value is NULL for a ZEND_INI_PARSER_ENTRY ERROR: Unable to include /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf from /etc/php-fpm.conf at line 1 ERROR: failed to load configuration file '/etc/php-fpm.conf' ERROR: FPM initialization failed
In some cases, the following error message appears on the Home page in Plesk:
PLESK_ERROR: New configuration files for the Apache web server were not created due to the errors in configuration templates:
Template processing failed:
file = /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/default/domainVhost.php,
error = Template_Exception: No data.
Template_Variable_Exception: No data.

This is a Plesk bug with ID PPPM-9483, that will be fixed in future product updates.
Such behavior occurs after upgrading system PHP to 7.x version. PHP 7.x treats prefixes "#" and ";" differently.
Apply the following workaround:
Connect to a Plesk server via SSH.
Modify the file
2.1. Open the
www.conffile in a text editor. In this example, the "vi" editor is used:
# vi /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf
2.2. Replace the hash symbols "#" with semicolons ";":
CONFIG_TEXT: ; Default www-pool configuration has been disabled by Plesk Panel.
; Pool configuration was saved in '/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf.saved_by_psa'.
2.3. Save the changes and close the file.
