I am creating a free shared hosting service for fun and learning. I made a simple form where the user enters the subdomain and ftp password. When the user hits submit, a script generates a linux user encrypts the entered password with crypt() then sends the data to a linux script. Here is the wrong part of the full script:

echo "[$1]
user = $1
group = $1
listen = /var/run/sock_$1.sock
pm = dynamic
pm.max_children = 5
pm.start_servers = 2
pm.min_spare_servers = 1
pm.max_spare_servers = 3
php_value[disable_functions] = \"phpinfo, system, exec, shell_exec, passthru , ini_alter, dl, pfsockopen, openlog, syslog, readlink, symlink, link, leak, fsockopen, popen, escapeshellcmd, apache_child_terminate apache_get_modules, apache_get_version, apache_getenv, apache_note,apache_setenv,virtual\"
php_value[open_basedir] = \"/home/$1:/home/$1/tmp\"" | sudo /usr/bin/tee /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/$1.conf;

sudo /usr/sbin/service php5-fpm reload;

As you can see it creates a PHP-FPM pool then reloads the service. When I manually create the pool and also manually reload FPM, it works fine, the new website loads with no problem. The problem that I noticed if I comment out the reload line it creates the pool so there is no problem with file writing but with reloading.

So when I submit the post with all the data, it has Internal server error 500.

Apache log:

[Thu Aug 08 01:43:44 2013] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] (104)Connection reset by peer: FastCGI: comm with server "/vhost_asd_tld" aborted: read failed, referer: http://asd.tld/
[Thu Aug 08 01:43:44 2013] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server "/vhost_asd_tld", referer: http://asd.tld/

The asd.tld pool:

user = asd_tld
group = asd_tld
listen = /var/run/sock_asd_tld.sock
pm = dynamic
pm.max_children = 5
pm.start_servers = 2
pm.min_spare_servers = 1
pm.max_spare_servers = 3

The asd.tld vhost:
