Knowing what I plan to do tomorrow...


is this something that needs to be enabled first, or at all? (PHP-FPM)

Thanks for schooling me on this stuff!

If you have a newer cPanel installation, PHP-FPM is likely enabled by default anyway. You can confirm this in the WHM >> MultiPHP Manager tool in WHM, where you'll see a section similar to this:

In WHM is is Not enabled. Should it be? And this server is just a few weeks old.

You may get slightly better performance if it's enabled - much like the http2 option, you can toggle that on and off to see if you notice a difference.
Should I do this before, or after, changing the handlers?

So I installed PHP-FPF for 7.4 and 8.0. The default is 7.4.

When I click the dropdown for the PHP Handler, all I see is cgi still.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Is that all I needed to do at this step?

Now it's time to install the handers?

Signed,

Still waking up here!

Additional handlers would need to be installed through the EasyApache tool before they'll show up in the dropdown. You can do that by customizing your EasyApache profile in WHM >> EasyApache 4, clicking the "Customize" button, and then you'll find the handlers under the "Apache Modules" section, like the image below:
