After “sudo apt-get upgrade” phpmyadmin doesn’t work, how can I fix it? - I have installed “LEMP on Ubuntu 14.04” not other installs

Are you seeing any output in the Nginx error log? Run:
tail -n25 /var/log/nginx/error.log

What packages were upgraded?

I had a similar error after php update.

  1. Go to /var/run # cd /var/run #sudo chmod 666 php5-fpm.sock 2.Enjoy!

Ran into same problem. I just edited my /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf file.


listen.owner = www-data = www-data 
listen.mode = 0660 

Restarted php5-fpm.

Logs showed
2014/06/24 20:04:25 [crit] 2223#0: *10547 connect() to unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock failed (13: Permission denied) while connecting to upstream, client: <snip>

Update (Nice we can edit the posts now)

Looking into this more closely it looks like it fixes bug CVE-2014-0185 incorrect socket permissions.


The default PHP FPM socket permission has been changed from 0666
to 0660 to mitigate a security vulnerability (CVE-2014-0185) in PHP
FPM that allowed any local user to run a PHP code under the active
user of FPM process via crafted FastCGI client.

The default Debian setup now correctly sets the listen.owner and to www-data:www-data in default php-fpm.conf.  If you
have more FPM instances or a webserver not running under www-data
user you need to adjust the configuration of FPM pools in
/etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ so the accessing process has rights to
access the socket.
