nginx server socket file not created for one of my users
« on: March 03, 2020, 03:49:11 PM »
I switched from Apache to nginx server for a few reasons. First, it seems nginx performance is better. When doing this, nginx created a bunch of conf files for each user account and a vhost based on the user domains listed (all the same domain, different sites).

The installation worked for 2 of the user accounts on the server, but the third one gave me a 502 bad gateway error.

On the server side, I got the following entry:
2020/03/03 23:27:54 [crit] 22783#22783: *568 connect() to unix:/opt/alt/php-fpm56/usr/var/sockets/xxx.sock failed (2: No such file or directory) while connecting to upstream, client:, server: *, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/opt/alt/php-fpm56/usr/var/sockets/xxx.sock:", host: ""

where 'xxx' is the user account and '' is the fqdn of the server domain.

When I look at the /opt/alt/php-fpm56/usr/var/sockets/ directory, it shows .sock files for each of the other users plus a 'nobody.sock' which I suppose is the default.

how do i either configure nginx to create xxx.sock or create the file myself so I can resolve this issue?

Any help is appreciated.
