From manual page:

The documentation clearly states that listen and listen.allowed_clients does not 
allow IPv6 addresses to be entered.

Expected result:
Be able to listen to IPv6 addresses, and allow IPv6 addresses.

Actual result:
The process does not start when entering a IPv6 address.

Same here, would be nice to have ipv6 support in php-fpm. Thanks!

In php-5.5.5 this still doesn't work; maybe update the version to reflect this. Listening on * wont listen on ipv6 either

Doesn't work indeed, so updated to current branch.

just fyi, current documentation @

no longer even expicitly states anything about IPv6 -- it completely fails to make any mention of it whatsoever.

The listen directive does state "Valid syntaxes are: '', 'port', '/path/to/unix/socket'", implying no IPv6 support

fwiw, my php -> PHP 5.5.8-dev (cli) (built: Dec 30 2013 18:36:38)

+1 on the "Expected Result" above ^^^

Fwiw; I just noticed a patch has already been created; it would be very nice if this could be pulled by the php devs
