ERROR with Ioncube Loader on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 LEMP

March 1, 2015 2.4k views

I have created a fresh droplet
with Ubuntu 14.04 x64 LEMP

I'm getting this error log during
the final loader check when
installing the ioncube loader.

2015/02/27 00:42:28 [crit] 1549#0: *1 connect() to unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock failed (2: No such file or directory) while connecting to upstream, client: my ip, server: localhost, request: "GET /ioncube/loader-wizard.php?timeout=0&ini=0&page=loader_check HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "my vps ip", referrer: "http://my vps ip/ioncube/loader-wizard.php?page=default"

Please help me understand how to correct this error.

That error message implies that PHP-FPM is not running. The first step in debugging this would be to check on the processes status by running:

  • sudo service php5-fpm status

You can restart the process using:

  • sudo service php5-fpm restart

If the process has crashed for some reason, check the error log for any messages that can point towards the case.

  • less /var/log/php5-fpm.log
