Hi guys,

Yesterday, all the websites that I have on one of our servers have fallen. I have made the revisions and the error is found in ea-php73-php-fpm. I have searched in forums that may be, but I still have not found a solution, if someone has happened before I would appreciate your help

Looking at the error log in WHM I have the following:

[ERROR] Failed to perform action “restart” for php-fpm “73”: The “/usr/bin/systemctl restart ea-php73-php-fpm” command (process 4342) reported error number 1 when it ended.
