Request for Comments: FPM SAPI inclusion

This RFC discusses the FPM configuration file syntax and it's replacement from XML to INI.


FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is under discussion for its inclusion into the PHP core distribution. See the RFC.

Until now, FPM uses a XML configuration file. It's been discussed several times with passion:

But it comes that we almost all agree to change it to INI. This RFC propose a INI syntax for FPM.

The requierements

  • An include directive to include one or several files at once
  • A global section which include global directives (pid file, ...)

The RFC is not yet finished.

Proposal and Patch

I've started writting the patch. Work In progress.
