The Internet offers a handful of solutions you will find to specific causes for this exit code from php-fpm:

  • PrivateDevices=true in fpm's systemd unit file, which blocks php from reading something in /dev it expects to.
  • Server unable to allocate RAM for the request - this is not hitting php's memory_limit for your fpm child. You get a properly explained error when hitting memory_limit.
  • When in doubt, downgrade. Or upgrade.
  • If you have a situation like mine, where it is clear the parent process is bricking itself after hundreds of thousands to millions of total requests... you can just force-restart your php process daily.

So far these are the only two scenarios I've found that aren't extremely version specific. Neither of them helped me, of course, but I was curious what this error code actually meant.

Because finding someone with your specific problem is highly unlikely, I figured it might be helpful to provide an explanation for what code 70 is.

PHP-FPM Exit Status 70

php-fpm exit code 70 is FPM_EXIT_SOFTWARE.

This is the catch-all phrase for 'something went wrong with my code and I bricked myself'.

Some of these will provide errors, most of which point to issues with php itself rather than something you can fix... but hey, it's an answer. And maybe downgrading or upgrading might help.

But if you search the repo, you'll find

the try-catch block here.

Some of these pathways lead to some information being given, but chances are just as likely you won't get anything. Your options here are to see if someone else has had the same problem (good luck), try some duct tape (downgrade, upgrade, create a reload or restart timer), or generate and debug core files.

In any case, I hope this helps people. Check the Main Page for the rest of the guide if you are interested, but it's mostly for Debian folks.
