Nginx Php7.2 update

Hello everyone,

As I was configuring a new web server today, I have realized that the latest nginx version (at least the one that is distributed by the Digital Ocean) does have outdated configuration line for the PHP 7.2

The configuration line specifies the fastcgi line as "fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;" which causes "502 Bad Gateway" errors, and if users are not careful about the issue, they might have hard time debugging it.

I suggest we change the default installation configuration to " fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock;" so that if a user installs Nginx and PHP7.2, they will automaticly be able to run PHP files without any problem.

Please excuse me if this has been addressed before. I tried to find a way to push a change but I couldn't find a Github repo or something similar, so I am sending this e-mail.
