I compiled PHP on my own computer, and I want to know how to setup a script to start PHP-FPM automatically. Can anyone suggest a script that will do this for me? I'm using a Ubuntu Linux server install.

As we have compiled PHP we should, I hope, still have source code. In the source code for PHP they very graciously included an init script for PHP-FPM. You can find it in <phpsrcdir>/sapi/fpm/init.d.php-fpm.

You can copy this file directly with

cp <phpsrcdir>/sapi/fpm/init.d.php-fpm /etc/init.d/php-fpm

and then chmod it to make it executable

chmod 755 /etc/init.d/php-fpm

From here, you can do service php-fpm <start|stop|force-quit|restart|reload>.

The script can also be found below just in case you deleted your source dir for php.

#! /bin/sh

### BEGIN INIT INFO

# Default-Stop:      0 1 6

### END INIT INFO
