Which PHP Type do you prefer

Which of the 3 PHP methods do you give to your customers? Are you sing php as module or fastcgi or cgi wrapper (what exactly is the difference between those two anyways ? :) )

On our non virtualmin servers we use suphp which is not available in virtualmin (eventually for a good reason) and i feel that mod_php has some security issues on a shared webhosting server. So for now we go with fastcgi.

Feel free to let me know why you decided on the php you use.

Thanks

Yeah, most people use FCGID (FastCGI), I believe... or at least, that's what we tend to recommend :-)

As you mentioned, mod_php doesn't work with suexec, and suexec is a nice security bonus in a shared hosting server.

CGI works fine, but is slower than the other options.
