Help with configuring to use PHP-FPM with Apache

    Dear all,

    I'm new here and not sure this place is where I can posts these questions but I have been trying to configure my Ubuntu 16.04 VPS to use PHP-FPM with Apache2.

    I followed this source:
    1. https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/apache-with-php-fpm-on-ubuntu-16-04/

    Modified this file:
    /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf to now have this inside:

    <Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin>
    Require all granted
    <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
    AddHandler php7-fcgi .php
    Action php7-fcgi /php7-fcgi virtual
    Alias /php7-fcgi /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php7-fcgi
    FastCgiExternalServer /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php7-fcgi -socket /var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock -pass-header Authorization

    Also modified this file /etc/apache2/conf-available and now it contains

    # Redirect to local php-fpm if mod_php is not available
    <IfModule !mod_php7.c>
    # Enable http authorization headers
    SetEnvIfNoCase ^Authorization$ "(.+)" HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$1

    <FilesMatch ".+\.ph(p[3457]?|t|tml)$">
    SetHandler "proxy:unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock|fcgi://localhost"
    <FilesMatch ".+\.phps$">
    # Deny access to raw php sources by default
    # To re-enable it's recommended to enable access to the files
    # only in specific virtual host or directory
    Require all denied
    # Deny access to files without filename (e.g. '.php')
    <FilesMatch "^\.ph(p[3457]?|t|tml|ps)$">
    Require all denied

    However, when I look at the output of the info.php page I have created in the document root I see Server API --> Apache 2.0 Handler in stead of what I expected after fiddling with the configuration. I expected Server API --> FPM/FastCGI

    What I find strange, is the contents of /run/php and the size of the php7.0-fpm.sock, the www-data and s in front of the directory but don't know if this has anything to do with it.

    /run/php$ ls -l
    total 4
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4 Jul 3 02:18 php7.0-fpm.pid
    srw-rw---- 1 www-data www-data 0 Jul 3 02:18 php7.0-fpm.sock
