Wordpress File uploads hang with PHP7-FPM, mod_php works fine?

Hi all,

I’m using the same php.ini settings (max post size and max upload size) for both PHP-FPM and the apache2 mod, but for some reason when I try to upload a file when I run through PHP-FPM, the file stops uploading at 7%. When I switch back to mod_php, I have no problems whatsoever.

What could be causing this problem? Is ti something related to www.conf and if so, what do I change?

UPDATE: I resolved the issue by disabling http2. It looks like both mod-proxy and mod-fastcgi don’t play very well with http2.
