    It is a real pain and fear for any company that wants to provide robust, fast and secure web hosting solution. Always doing the A/B testing to find out the best optimal configuration but as far as there are many options and modules it's heard to obtain the right configuration combining all factors of successful performance and stability.

    cPanel is trying its best to give all options available however each company does have its own requirements, and sharing experience will be much helpful.

    We are building new server with high specs to provide best solution include:
    - Performance
    - Stability
    - Reliability
    - Security

    Processors: Dual Intel Hex Core E5-2630v1
    Memory: 32GB RAM
    Hard Disk: 4x 2TB 7.2k HDD
    SSD for OS: 1x 120Gb SSD
    RAID: RAID 10
    OS: CentOS 6 64bit
    Control Panel: cPanel inc cPanel
    Bandwidth: 10Tb Bandwidth
    Port Speed: Dedicated 100Mbps Port

    Most of the sites are using CMS's mostly Wordpress then Joomla then Drupal. Thus We are trying to find the optimal configuration. Especially when it comes to high volume traffic sites.

    After reading lots of articles I've been advised to go with FCGI(FastCGI) but the scary part is security although it's secure but considered a level down secure then SuPHP. I'm planning to add Varnish with Eaccelerator and adding the memcache.

    Using EasyApache 4 we will install
    - Mod FastCGI v2.3.9
    - Asis
    - AuthnDefault
    - Mod Qos 11.5
    - MPM Worker
    - MemCache
    - Cache
    - Disk Cache
    - Mod Bandwidth
    - EAccelerator
    - memcache

    Plus Varnish

    I didn't list all the modules just picked the top I think. As far as I know that most popular hosting companies run SuPHP and everything is fine. Also I found DSO is the best regarding performance but not a good option for security.

    I think I'm confused with options as some modules won't work with others thus what you think the best combination to serve high traffic volume sites with security and stability.
