Our PBX has 512MB of RAM and things are getting tight, so I’m looking to slim down the software.
So, I’ve got Nginx and PHP-FPM set up on Scientific Linux 6.7 and everything seems to be working just fine with a very minimal config; has anyone else tried it and had any issues? Anything I should pay extra attention to when testing?
This is my first time working with Nginx and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get FreePBX up and running with it.
No idea how well it will run under the outdated PHP 5.3 provided by the distro. I think PHP-FPM is much more mainstream now than it was 8 or 9 years ago; I use PHP 5.6. Definitely worth trying out though.
There are some known issues with FreePBX 13 and PHP 5.6 (eg, Dashboard). FreePBX 14 is going to have 5.5 (? I think? Have a look in the wiki) as a minimum requirement, and we’re using PHP 5.6 in Distro7.
