Try access your web via localhost or via ip e.g.,

5. Edit nginx config file;

Adjust worker proc & keepalive accordingly;

    worker_processes   4;
    keepalive_timeout   2;

6. Edit the virtual host config;

vi /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
   server {
           listen 80;
           #listen [::]:80 default ipv6only=on;

           root /usr/share/nginx/www; # you can change to any path you want
           index index.php index.html index.htm;

           server_name _;

           location / {

           location ~ \.php$ {
                   try_files $uri =404;
                   fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
                   fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/php5-fpm.sock;
                   fastcgi_index index.php;
                   include fastcgi_params;

           location ~ /\.ht {
                   deny all;

Making PHP-FPM Use A Unix Socket By default PHP-FPM is listening on port 9000 on It is also possible to make PHP-FPM use a Unix socket which avoids the TCP overhead. To do this, open /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf.

12. Edit file

vi /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf

... and make the listen line look as follows:

;listen =
listen = /tmp/php5-fpm.sock

13. Then reload PHP-FPM:

/etc/init.d/php5-fpm reload
