New Librenms installation not finding php .sock file

Hey guys,

I’m trying to install Librenms to an Ubuntu 20.04, followed the instructions from your website step by step, but when I went to the install GUI, it says there was an error and couldn’t continue, when I checked the log file it says it couldn’t find /run/php/php-fpm-librenms.sock, I checked the location and the file is there with the right permissions, What can cause that and how can I fix it so I can give Librenms a try?

This is the output from validate.php:


Component Version
LibreNMS 22.5.0-16-g6761d37cd
DB Schema Not Connected (0)
PHP 7.4.3
Python 3.8.10
MySQL Not Connected
RRDTool 1.7.2
SNMP 5.8


[OK] Composer Version: 2.3.6
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
Could not connect to database, check logs/librenms.log.

That’s normal, DB has not been configured because I can’t access the install GUI.
Thank you.

i had same problem,
verify if the socket details are matching in below config files
