PHP-FPM server reached max_children


Today I came across an error in my log file about [pool] server reached max_children setting (8), consider raising it I would like to know which file I’d have to edit to increase the size for the whole server instead of just one domain.


default.tpl and PHP-X_Y.tpl from


But I would suggest you make a copy and edit that, as these templates could get overwritten during a upgrade.

cp default.tpl custom_default.tpl

If you want to overide PHP-X_Y.tpl, you need to apply the following patch


Thank you! :ok_hand:
