[root@localhost ~]# systemctl start rh-php56-php-fpm && systemctl status rh-php56-php-fpm

Step 4: Need to modify httpd conf to enable mod_proxy_fcgi to work with php-fpm by using the following command:

[root@localhost ~]# nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Add the following before IncludeOptional conf.d/*.conf:

<IfModule proxy_module>

ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ fcgi://$1

after test PHP web page, need to remove that file by using the following commands:

[root@localhost ~]# rm -rf /var/www/html/info.php

Step 6: When you have verified it is working, you can enable httpd and php-fpm to start on boot by using the following commands:

[root@localhost ~]# systemctl enable rh-php56-php-fpm.service && systemctl enable httpd

Now PHP 5.6 installation is completed.
