Apache and easy build options for better php performance
I want to ask what do you recommend me to check on easy apache build to get the best php performance possible?
The server is dedicated and very powerfull and it has only one account in it.
I am using cpanel and Centos.
Is it better to use DSO or Fcgi ?
At the moment i have check for build the:
Mysql of the system
Path Info Check
So what do you think i must add or remove to get the maximum performance for php from Apache and php?
Some users recommend me to use mod_php and some fast cgi and i don't know what are those and which is better and how to get them run using the easy apache build
mod_php + eAccelerator will give you the best performance, yet the security (for shared hosting) will be VERY BAD
mod_fcgid + eAccelerator will give you second best performance, and good security. Make sure you have extra RAM available, and you might need to fine tune mod_fcgid settings.
suPHP - ok performance, same security as mod_fcgid. The performance is dramatically worse then what you can get with mod_fcgid + eAccelerator. Also, eAccelerator doesn't add any benefit to suPHP, just wastes memory.
