First off, I am a newbie but am putting a lot of heart at searching/learning/understanding. The DO Community has been a tremendous help so far :) Here’s a problem I can’t solve because I’m not sure where to start.
While reviewing the running processes on my droplet (Ubuntu), I noticed that two instances of php5-fpm are running, one under my expected www-data user, one under root.
First, I’d like to understand why this root instance is here. Second, although it’s eating up a tiny amount of memory, it’s still significant on my 512MB droplet.
