So I switched to php 5.6 with fpm. I see there are now only 4 apache processes but about 400 php-fpm56 processes.
I've been tuning the php-fpm process (to little effect) by playing with the pm.xxxxx variables.
But I'm curious, should I still try to tune the http-mpm files that contain variables like Maxclients, maxworkers, etc or does that not have any effect and all the tuning should be focused on pm.xxxx variables for the php-fpm processes
Thanks! If any of this is confusing or my terminology is confusing let me know. Still trying to wrap my head around this new way of doing things
