    I'd like to speed up my e-commerce site by changing my VPS to fcgi & php7. My host has been pretty apprehensive about running fcgi on my server in regards to security & stability with EA4. But he was also brushing off EA3 & fcgi since EA3 has been deprecated.

    Is EA3 still the way to go when using fcgi & php7? Is there any reason why this would not be good for the next couple years or until EA4 is stable with fcgi?

    Hello,

    cPanel & WHM will not support EasyApache 3 in version 64 or later. Additionally, EasyApache 3 is scheduled for deprecation in January of 2018, when cPanel & WHM version 62 reaches End of Life.

    I'd recommend using EA4 with mod_fcgid as documented at:

    Apache Module: FCGId - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    If You are using CloudLinux, lsapi_mod is even better option than fastcgi.
