Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "php" page has been changed by gryzor:
https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/php?action=diff&rev1=7&rev2=8

  Please see the [[php-fcgid|following article]]
  
  
- == Using php as a DSO (deprecated) ==
+ == Using mod_php as a DSO (deprecated) ==
  
- This method is the oldest and slowest possible configuration. It is suitable for version
2.2 and older, and requires the use of the prefork mpm.
+ This method is the oldest and slowest possible configuration. It was suitable for version
2.2 and older, and requires the use of the prefork mpm.
+ === Why you shouldn't use mod_php anymore ===
+  * mod_php is loaded into every httpd process all the time. Even when httpd is serving static/non
php content, that memory is in use.
+  * mod_php is not thread safe and forces you to stick with the prefork mpm (multi process,
no threads), which is the slowest possible configuration
  
+ === How to use it anyway ===
  First, the module must be loaded:
  
    `LoadModule php5_module lib/httpd/modules/libphp5.so`
