Upcoming change to Apache/PHP-CGI apps

On 31 January 2022 we'll begin a phased rollout of a change to our Apache/PHP-CGI setup to transition from PHP-CGI to PHP-FPM.

This change will improve the performance of all Apache/PHP applications hosted at Opalstack. There are a high number of these apps installed throughout the platform, so this change should also improve the overall performance of our servers for all customers.

We do not anticipate any disruptions related to this change.

We'll update this maintenance item when the rollout begins and as it progresses.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change then please email them to support@opalstack.com.

2022-02-05 14:18 UTC - we've been rolling out these changes slowly across a small number of customer VPS and so far no problems have been noted. We'll be ramping up the rollout over the coming week.

2022-05-09 14:00 UTC - all VPS have been updated to use the Apache/PHP-FPM stack. We've also deployed the changes on 1 shared server (opal14, SFO shared) as of 2022-05-09 0300 UTC and will monitor that server for a couple of days before moving on to the other shared servers.

2022-05-22 11:00 UTC opal1 and opal12 have been updated to use the Apache/PHP-FPM stack.
