In the MultiPHP Manager in cPanel 60's WHM. I see the box:

Your system contains an old PHP-FPM configuration

Which is true. I was using a custom PHP-FPM setup, the original documentation you seem to have removed. I believe the original documentation was at I had created a set of hooks to automatically create these pools and setup the user to use their PHP-FPM pool.

I know cPanel 60 changed the way PHP-FPM is set up. Or something. I'm trying to figure out what exactly changed and what I need to do.

It would be helpful if I knew how MultiPHP Manager knows that Your system contains an old PHP-FPM configuration

Hello @sparek-3,

The manual method documented for configuring PHP-FPM prior to cPanel version 60 was unsupported, and replaced with official support for PHP-FPM in cPanel version 60:

cPanel 60 Release Notes - Extended FPM Support

The following document is useful if you want to review the manual steps that were documented for cPanel version 58:

Configure or Disable PHP-FPM with User Pools for EasyApache 4 - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

Here are some commands that will help with finding accounts with PHP-FPM enabled via the manual steps in cPanel version 58:

find /etc/apache2/conf.d/userdata/std/2_4/*/* -type f -name fpm.conf
find /etc/apache2/conf.d/userdata/ssl/2_4/*/* -type f -name fpm.conf
Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

Thank you.

I've just realized that we've that warning in one of our v66 servers in MultiPHP Manager.

find commands can't find any fpm.conf in std nor ssl directories. Any other tip for cleaning this notice?

Thank you.
