- Plesk for Linux
Unable to start PHP-FPM if no domains are using it:
Note: plesk-php56-fpm is used as an example.
The command below reports that PHP-FPM is not in use by any domain:
# plesk bin php_handler --get-usage -id plesk-php56-fpm
The PHP handler with ID "plesk-php56-fpm" is not used.
There are no (zero) configuration files inside a PHP-FPM pool directory:
# ls /opt/plesk/php/5.6/etc/php-fpm.d/* | wc -l
ls: cannot access /opt/plesk/php/5.6/etc/php-fpm.d/*: No such file or directory
The following error message appear in
CONFIG_TEXT: ERROR: No pool defined. at least one pool section must be specified in config file
Going to Tools & Settings > Services Management > Plesk PHP-FPM 5.6 service cannot be started, its status is disabled as follows:
This is expected behavior: If a PHP-FPM handler is not in use by any of domains, it will not start.
When a domain will be switched to this PHP-FPM handler, its PHP-FPM service will start automatically.
To start using a particular PHP-FPM version, just assign it to any domain at Domains > example.com > PHP Settings. The service will be started automatically.
I have the same error on Onyx (17.0.17). Unable to start using the command line, nore in the Plesk Services screen (the start button is dimmed with that tip : service not well configured)
@Lυc, this can happen if there is no websites assigned on this handler. Make sure that you have at least one domain configured to use php-fpm handler.
If no domains will use php-fpm, service will be in stopped state by design.
