nginx error connect to php5-fpm.sock failed (13: Permission denied)

PHP fixed a security bug where o had rw permission to the socket file.

  1. Open /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf
  2. Uncomment all permission lines, like:
    listen.owner = www-data = www-data
    listen.mode = 0660
  3. Restart fpm – sudo service php5-fpm restart

Note: if your webserver runs as as user other than www-data, you will need to update the www.conf file accordingly
