Does anyone here have experience with moving from standard non-suexec to suexec in a production environment? It's time we did this upgrade and I wanted to know what to look out for as far as enduser problems after this upgrade.
PHP file permissions need to be changed to 755, not *77 or 666 because they'll give errors. You also need to convert files from nobody:nobody to user:user.
Other than those two things, what I've experienced is just needing to convert a few extra folders that an automated script to change ownership missed. Be sure to explain changes in php flags and give your clients enough time for this change.

I'd consult with a server administrator before doing this yourself if you're unsure. The markletplace here has many reputable ones posting ads all the time.
If you're talking about phpsuexec, it does create many issues as when we first switched to it there were many many conflicts and lots of manual work on our end so you should be prepared for a flood of tickets to come in if you do decide to do this.
