A quick summary of PHP execution modes

For today’s snippet, we’re giving you a quick summary of PHP execution modes, and how Virtualmin describes them in their help bubble:

If your system supports it, the FPM or FCGId options are the best, as they run PHP scripts quickly and as the domain owner.

  • CGI Wrapper

Unless your system is heavily loaded or security between users is not an issue, the CGI wrapper option is recommended.

The mod_php mode is not recommended, as the small gain in performance should be balanced against the lack of security between virtual servers.
