Fpm error logs

The Fpm error log (fpm-error.log) records infrastructure-level issues with Fpm’s process management in PHP. It is closely related to the Fpm access log, which records all requests to PHP, and the PHP error log, which records application-level issues encountered while processing a request. The Fpm error log only handles web requests; command-line requests are logged in the PHP error log.

For a list of the log files handled by Cloud Platform, including accessing these log files, log file retention, and their locations, see About Cloud Platform logging.

Note for log forwarding users

Acquia’s log forwarding feature adds information to the beginning of each line that is forwarded to an external service. For more information, see File formats in forwarded log files.
