Install New Relic With Plesk 12.5

Plesk 12.5 allow for multiple PHP versions and integration methods. This is a great feature but it makes installing New Relic more difficult. New Relic by default installs to the Linux distribution’s version of PHP. With Plesk 12.5, there are multiple PHP versions in different locations. Also New Relic uses a unix socket to facilitate communication between the newrelic-daemon and the PHP component. When running PHP under php-fpm there are permission problems with multiple sites using New Relic. Here are the steps to get New Relic working on CentOS or RedHat. Other Linux distributions will be similar.
