This module manages PHP and the FastCGI Process Manager.

CentOS, RHEL, Scientific and Oracle Enterprise Linux is supported using Puppet 4.9.0 or later.


Setup Requirements

On RHEL/CentOS platforms you may need to have access to the EPEL repository for some of the additional PHP extensions by using stahnma/epel or by other means. If you wish to use a version of PHP shipped in a Software Collection then you will need access to the SCL repository using bodgit/scl or similar.

Beginning with php

In the very simplest case, you can just include the following which mimics the default installation and extensions:

include ::php


Additional extensions are available, so if you need MySQL support:

include ::php
include ::php::extension::mysql

The FastCGI Process Manager can be installed and multiple pools can be configured:

include ::php
include ::php::fpm

::php::fpm::pool { 'www':
  listen          => '/var/run/php-fpm/www.sock',
  pm              => 'static',
  pm_max_children => 10,
  user            => 'apache',


The reference documentation is generated with puppet-strings and the latest version of the documentation is hosted at


This module has been built on and tested against Puppet 4.9.0 and higher.

The module has been tested on:

  • CentOS Enterprise Linux 6/7

This module doesn't install or configure mod_php for Apache however the apache::mod::php class should work in combination with this module.


The module has both rspec-puppet and beaker-rspec tests. Run them with:

$ bundle exec rake test
$ PUPPET_INSTALL_TYPE=agent PUPPET_INSTALL_VERSION=x.y.z bundle exec rake beaker:<nodeset>
