Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache and Wordpress file permissions options

We are using Apache 2.2, so we are using prefork.

So no problems using PHp-fpm and prefork on Apache 2.2?

Any recommendations on the best method to accomplish individual users Wordpress installations
maintaining their owner:group instead of changing to the owner:group of the Apache process?

Not a Wordpress multi-user installation. Each user installs their own Wordpress.

Looking at the Wordpress site ...

Any pros/cons regarding these Apache modules?

  *   suPHP<>, runs through php-cgi, currently unmaintained
since 2013.
  *   mod_ruid2<>, apache module, simple but effective.
  *   mpm-itk<>, apache module.
  *   PHP-FPM<>, a FastCGI server with more extensive configuration.

Thanks for your time


You should just use php-fpm, it allows you to define different "pools" with their own setup,
including user and ip:port/unix socket, and it's the way php is supposed to be "processed"
nowadays, by its own daemon.

php-fpm is also ideal because it rids the burden of php from apache HTTPD, while this one
can use the most performant mpm (event) to deal with its own work.

To each their own!
