Configure a global default value for php-fpm max_children for all accounts

Horde/Squirrelmail and other cPanel services do not function when server reached max_children setting (25) for php-fpm. This happends if the customers have alot of users logged in and they reach the limit.

The solution now is to edit /var/cpanel/php-fpm.d/username.conf, but it would be great to have a global configuration so we don't have to change for each user.

This is needed because when you have clients with huge mail accounts, the webmail login seems to be affected and takes a very long time.

Upon investigations via ticket it was concluded that php limits are reached and there is a huge delay,up to 40-50 seconds when logging in to some accounts.

This is in case of clients that have many gigabytes of mails and many accounts like 20-30 and they mostly use webmail

Smaller accounts do not have a problem.
