I am currently working on setting up a high-availability infrastructure for my website and I have a question regarding the use of PHP-FPM with load balancers or reverse proxies. I have done some research on this topic, but I am still unsure about the best approach.
In my setup, I have multiple servers running PHP-FPM behind a load balancer or reverse proxy. I want to ensure that my website remains highly available even if one of the servers goes down.
I have heard that using PHP-FPM with load balancers or reverse proxies can help in achieving this goal, but I am not entirely clear on the details. Can PHP-FPM handle the load balancing on its own or do I need to set up additional software or configurations to make it work?
I would greatly appreciate any insights or recommendations from those who have experience with high-availability setups using PHP-FPM and load balancers or reverse proxies. What are the best practices? Are there any specific configurations or tools that I need to consider? How does PHP-FPM interact with the load balancer or reverse proxy?
Thank you in advance for your help!
