Best PHP handler for cPanel on CentOS

Permalink
I'm curious what other users have found to be the most reliable and best performing PHP handler on a CentOS server running cPanel & Concrete5?

DSO is usually the best performing of them all but it comes with its problems related to permissions.

After that, probably FCGI if you want to get rid of the mentioned "problems" (in quotes because it depends on your environment if these are problems at all).

Here's a very good comparison between the handlers:

One interesting option (that I have no experience of) is running DSO with mod_ruid2 which gets rid of the "permission problems" with DSO.

But as it says on its page, there are some security issues related to that (although, it would require Apache itself to be vulnerable which is of course possible).

Personally, I'd recommend FPM as it usually performs better than FCGI. I haven't heard of mod_ruid2, might be worth checking out! Thanks for mentioning it, put it on my list ;-)
