Using PHP5-FPM With Apache 2

Install apache2-mpm-worker:

apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker

Apache’s default document root is /var/www on Ubuntu, and the configuration file is /etc/apache2/apache2.conf. Additional configurations are stored in subdirectories of the /etc/apache2 directory such as /etc/apache2/mods-enabled (for Apache modules), /etc/apache2/sites-enabled (for virtual hosts), and /etc/apache2/conf.d.

Install mod_fastcgi module:

apt-get install libapache2-mod-fastcgi php5-fpm php5
a2enmod actions fastcgi alias

Add to /etc/apache2/conf.d/php5-fpm.conf:

<IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
    AddHandler php5-fcgi .php
    Action php5-fcgi /php5-fcgi
    Alias /php5-fcgi /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi
    FastCgiExternalServer /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi -host -pass-header Authorization

Restart Apache:

server apache2 restart
