Good morning
I read somewhere that if I switch from mod_ruid2 to mod_suPHP, I have to re-install all existing applications because I lose all file access permissions !!
I ask because I don't want to get stuck and have to reinstall everything.
Thanks

The files/directories should be owned by the account username/owner, and permissions should be 0644 for files and 0755 for directories, then mod_suPHP should work normally and won't cause any files permission related issues.

Sorry if only now I answer you
Thank you very much, with a little fear I try to make this modification.
On the other hand I understand that the mod_suPHP mode is better for performance and other connected.
Thanks again

As long as your applications have the default permissions and ownership like @kodeslogic mentioned, you won't run into issues. If you do, it would be easy to troubleshoot them through the Apache error log, or you can always switch back to your previous handler with just a few clicks.
