No PHP-FPM is restarted after an user restore by Directadmin

| 12:36:00 13.02.2019

Directadmin of the version 1.55.0 does not restart PHP-FPM after an user restoration if found domains with SSL certs.

The bug was already reported to Directadmin developers, and while we are waiting for an official fix, here is a possible solution from Poralix:

Use a hook script

Create it if it does not exist:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/custom
touch ./
chmod 700 ./
chown diradmin:diradmin ./

Open it in an editor and populate the file with the following code lines:


# PHP-FPM is not restarted after an user import
# so here we restart it
    echo "[$(date)] Restarting php-fpm${PHP_VER}";
    /bin/systemctl restart "php-fpm${PHP_VER}";
    ps aux | grep -v grep | grep "php-fpm: master process" | grep "${PHP_VER}";

for PHP_VER in $(grep ^php[1-4]_release= /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/options.conf | grep -v =no | cut -d= -f2 | awk -F. '{print $1$2}')
    restart_fpm | logger -t user_restore_post;

Save the file and exit the editor.

You can control how it runs through /var/log/messages on a CentOS based server:

grep user_restore_post /var/log/messages

It's supposed that you see something like:

Feb 13 07:22:31 srvlin02 user_restore_post: [Wed Feb 13 07:22:31 CET 2019] Restarting php-fpm72

That's it.
