I had a fully functioning ubuntu 14.04 serving up via nginx a passenger/ror
site with 'some' php.

The passenger/ror bit works fine after the upgrade however any attempt at
accessing my php files gives a 404 Not Found error:

The error.log for nginx shows the following:


2017/04/22 11:16:22 [crit] 16531#0: *1 connect() to
unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock failed (13: Permission denied) while
connecting to upstream, client:, server:
resys.gourmindia.com, request: "GET /phpinfo.php HTTP/1.1", upstream:
"fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock:", host:


My question is what should the /var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock have as

ALL help gratefully received with thanks.
