    I'm in the "MultiPHP manager"...

    [And by the way cPanel, I absolutely adore you for adding in this option and I think you've got me hooked on to EasyApache 4 from this alone...]

    And I have an option to apply a PHP version to my accounts, or "PHP-FPM".

    I've already hit up the Googlez, and I can't find too much information on it that isn't so in depth that it flies right by the basic question of what it is.

    What are the benefits of turning it on too?

    Thank you!

    Out of everywhere I looked, I completely looked past the cPanel documentation and I'm surprised it didn't come up on Google!

    One thing that isn't on Google or the cPanel documentation is an explanation of the pool options.

    What is the difference between "Max children" and "Max requests" and what unit is the idle timeout in? Isn't that already in php.ini?

    Thanks!

    Hello @lewis-teck,

    I'm happy to see you are enjoying EasyApache 4 thus far.

    The PHP-FPM configuration values are not stored in the default php.ini file. Instead, you would follow the instructions from this post if you needed to adjust any values other than the ones listed under "Pool Options" in the UI:

    Enabling PHP-FPM in MultiPHP Manager

    You can find information on the default configuration values at:

    PHP: Configuration - Manual

    The default "Process Idle Timeout" value is "10 seconds".

    Thank you.
