PHP5-FPM crashing: "server reached pm.max_children setting" (Ubuntu 14 - LEMP)
My WordPress droplet, 512gb/Ubuntu14/Swap/LEMP/never gave a problem. From today PHP5-FPM writes this message in
WARNING: [pool www] server reached pm.max_children setting (5), consider raising it
So after reading, I’ve been increasing this size to 30 in
/etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf but still writes the error, now:
server reached pm.max_children setting (30)
What’s the reason this is happening now? It hasn’t been a high traffic lately, and
$free shows 200mb free memory.
