I'm wondering why an error is raised when no default pool configuration file is present. For instance, for Debian, the package maintainer configures a default pool configuration file set with the www-data user. This fulfills default installation requirements for Debian, but in some cases, we would expect no default pool configuration file.

For instance, we're providing a control panel which allows to manage shared hosting environments . Mutliple PHP versions are provided through the panel (through PHP-FPM).

First of all, it should be noted that for security reasons, we never run PHP through the www-data user. PHP is run through dedicated unix users (one for each customer). So here, we don't need to have a default pool configuration set with www-data user, which will never be used. Thefore, on installation, this default file is removed by our backend.

To resume, when rebooting or when restarting the PHP-FPM instance, there should be no error when no pool file configuration is available. Instead, the daemon should not start (silently).

We would break expectations (and probably deploys) if we changed something that used to emit an error, to fail silently ... we cannot reasonably do this.
