- Plesk for Linux
Many php-fcgi with <defunct> state are causing memory issues:
# ps auxff | grep defunct
12065 32514 [php-cgi] <defunct>
12065 32640 [php-cgi] <defunct>
This behavior is confirmed as a product bug PPPM-6833 which is planned to be fixed in future Plesk updates.
As a workaround, replace file
with one attached to this article:
- Connect to the server using SSH.
- Apply custom fix:
# wget https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/115001443714/apache_cleanup.zip
# unzip apache_cleanup.zip
# mv apache_cleanup.sh /usr/local/psa/bin/apache_cleanup.sh
# chmod 0755 /usr/local/psa/bin/apache_cleanup.sh
