PHP is a general-purpose scripting language geared towards web development. PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module, a daemon or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable.

By default Nginx is not capable of processing dynamic web pages with PHP so it requires the use of specific additional plugins for this purpose. One of these plugins is FPM (FastCGI Process Manager). FPM is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features (mostly) useful for heavy-loaded sites. It is the preferred method of processing PHP pages with Nginx and is faster than traditional CGI based methods.

PHP is a scripting language widely used for web development, with code processed on a web server through a PHP interpreter, implemented as a module, daemon, or CGI executable. Nginx lacks the default ability to handle dynamic web pages with PHP and requires specific additional plugins for this purpose. One such plugin is FPM (FastCGI Process Manager), an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation offering additional features, particularly advantageous for high-traffic sites. FPM stands out as the preferred method for PHP page processing with Nginx, surpassing traditional CGI-based methods in terms of speed.
