I have installed PHP 7.4.5 froum source on a CentOS 7 server. I'm trying to configure the php-fpm component and I'm having no success.

I've found a website that has, what seems to be, some somewhat accurate steps (https://linuxadmin.io/php-fpm-php7-source/). I have adjusted my paths accordingly.

Here are the exact sequence of steps I've taken (see below). If someone could point out what I'm doing wrong, I'd appreciate it and/or if there IS a tutorial on the web, etc., that I could refer to, I'd appreciate that as well!

(As root)
yum install bzip2-devel libcurl-devel libxml2-devel oniguruma-devel re2c sqlite-devel.x86_64 systemd-devel -y
tar -zxvf php-7.4.5.tar.gz

cp /src/php-src-php-7.4.5/sapi/fpm/php-fpm.conf /usr/local/etc/php-fpm.conf

vi /usr/local/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf (un-comment listen.owner = nginx , listen.group = nginx , and listen.mode = 0660)
cd /usr/sbin
ln -s /usr/local/sbin/php–fpm /usr/sbin/php–fpm

systemctl enable php-fpm.service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl start php-fpm.service

Suggestions?

Thank you!

I'm not particularly experienced at troubleshooting source installation problems, but the overall sysadmin troubleshooter in me compels me to ask if you have tried installing from the package manager just to get to a properly running baseline system you can use to identify what "good" looks like while you try troubleshoot your difficulties doing a build from source?

Maybe somebody here will recognize your build problem and help you directly, but if I was in your spot and couldn't use the packaged version for some reason, I'd start with examining a finished article I know works to assist my troubleshoot. 

Good luck!

Scott

Scott,
I have done something very similar to what you're suggesting. I have installed php-fpm from a package, and it works fine with my php install from source. 

Once it was installed, I very carefully noted the difference between the "source" install php-fpm.conf, php-fpm.service, php.ini, and www.conf files and their counterparts from the php-fpm package...that works just fine. I them applied all of those individual, exact changes to the appropriate files to see if my php-fpm source install would run?...unfortunately, php-fpm didn't work using that method either!

You're probably asking why I bother to try and get php-fpm to work, from a source php install, when it will work from an installed package? Only because 1.) I like the granularity of control when installing from source and 2.) I'd like to understand what it the minimum, basic configuration that's needed to configure and run php-fpm from source!

Having said that, I'm hoping someone can/will share the secrets with me.

:-)

Sounds like what I would have done.  Next step would be to start the service on each side under a logging strace instance and look for where the traces diverge. It's been a successful strategy in the past for me to allow me to focus on where, exactly, the failure is occurring and at least identify the culprit, if not the cause. :)

Thanks Scott!

On a side note, I'm very surprised that there are no tutorials online (at least none that I've seen) that demonstrate how to configure php-fpm from source!
