    I currently use suPHP on my servers and it been like that for some time now.

    I have one server that has a special client that seems like some software called Integrator 3 by Go Higher is possibly not liking suPHP because possibly special permissions to files and folders.

    I am possibly considering to use DSO with suEXEC instead

    Would this be the right decision to change?

    Hello :)

    If you switch to DSO, you may want to consider Mod_Ruid2:

    Mod_Ruid2

    Please review the above documentation to see the existing compatibility issues when using it.

    Thank you.

    "The mod_ruid2 Apache module introduces a complex security model." Does this mean that it is just as good at security as suPHP to certain degree?

    So in EasyApache just enable and recompile right?

    Mod Ruid2 0.9.8 [ More Info ↑ ]

    See documentation that can found by clicking "More Info" for details This option will make the following changes to your profile prior to the build:

    Disables:
    Cache
    Disk Cache
    Mod FastCGI v2.3.9
    MPM Event
    MPM Leader
    MPM Perchild
    MPM Threadpool
    MPM Worker
    MemCache
    Tomcat 5.5
    Mod Mono 2.6.3 (.Net 1.x)
    Mod Mono 2.6.3 (.Net 2.x)
    POSIX
    Tomcat 7.0

    If things do not work the way that I want it I just restore previous configuration and recompile right?

    There's an informative thread on this at:

    Mod_Ruid2 vs suPHP

    Yes, you simply enable it through EasyApache and select DSO as your PHP handler via "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Configure PHP and suEXEC". You can always run another EasyApache build with it disabled if it does not work to your satisfaction.

    Thank you.

    I am recompiling and see how it works.

    I also found this interesting information below

    [suPHP] suPHP End of Life Notice https://lists.marsching.com/pipermail/suphp/2013-May/002554.html

    "As suPHP is open-source software, everyone is free to keep building on top of it. Actually I hope that someone might be interested in maintaining suPHP in the future."

    Thank you Michael for the information I have switched over to DSO with Mod_Ruid2 and seems to be running on 1 server with no issues.
