    So I understand that PHP-FPM can lower load and improve the handling of traffic spikes, but are there any downsides to enabling it?

    Can it break things? What kind of things?
    Is it usually safe to use the "Convert All Accounts to PHP-FPM" button?

    Hello @jcwacky,

    There are some slight differences in how php.ini directives are managed with PHP-FPM. We recently published a guide with information on those differences at:

    Tutorial - Managing php.ini directives with PHP-FPM

    Keep in mind you can easily disable PHP-FPM for each domain using WHM >> MultiPHP Manager should you observe any issues.

    Thank you.

    Thanks, that's very helpful, I'll have a read and see if that could affect any of the sites on my server.
