This is just a quick note. This morning I received an email alert from cPanel as follows:
“The status of the feature request: you were watching has changed to In Progress.“
This was in regards to the feature request for MariaDB support. It will be interesting to see how long this takes to be implemented. Its also nice to see cPanel responding to users petitioning for various features. It took 2 years and almost 400 votes.
cPanel, please support PHP FastCGI Process Manager (PHP-FPM)
All of this brings back PHP-FPM to mind. If you are using cPanel/WHM on any of your web servers please take a few seconds to vote for this feature request… FastCGI Process Manager (FPM) SAPI. Just one of the many key advantages of PHP-FPM is that one opcode cache can be shared across multiple processes. With other fastcgi, the cache is stored per-process and cleared on process recycles. Thus, using FPM can result in, improved opcode caching and also big memory savings, which in turn allows you to spawn more processes/scale better under increased loads.
