Should I be using suPHP then instead of the formentioned suexec/mod_fcgid ?

*fast* cgi , which as the name implies, is erm, fast ;)

See, only apache has PHP as a module.

Other web servers such as nginx or lighttpd use a fastcgi process.

This has several advantages:

- you'll no longer see apache exit with (quote) a "signal 11, core
dumped" because of lousy php code / errors.
- you can use different php config files for different vhosts
- php fcgi is faster
- you can use process accounting to check the processing time consumed
individually by your web server , and your PHP processes
- you will slightly reduce the size of your apache processes, since
they'll no longer load mod_php
