    i would like to configure my server for my customers. But it should not offer all things existing nowadays. It should support general things.

    - less memory(ram) Usage
    - fast working

    It would be GREAT if anyone could give me his/her profile-file.

    I have a lot of questions regarding the installation with easyapache:

    I will begin:

    Step 1:
    - I click to "start installation based on profille" to customize apache and so on.

    Step 2:
    I select the apache Version 2.2.
    Good Idea?

    Step 3:
    I only set PHP 5 (PHP4 not recomended with apache 2.2)

    Step 4:
    I take the newest Version of PHP: 5.2.10

    Step 5

    - I click on the bottom to "exhaustive option list" to see all features

    I Select: (+ means yes, - mens no)

    + Mod SuPHP (Because of Owner-Control and custom php.ini's for domains) right.

    + Disk Cache (for less memory usage) Good Idea?

    - Mod FCGID (don't need, because u have SuPHP right)

    + FIleCache
    (Caching frequently requested files that change very infrequently is a technique for reducing server lo) --> I think good idea.

    ? MPM Event works with MPM Worker together? Should install?

    + MPM Worker (supports Threading, lesss memory, faster) good idea?

    + Vhost Alias Is good?

    -EAccelerator for PHP
    "caches compiled PHP pages ONLY when running in a persistent (DSO/FCGID) manner" --> So if I run SUPHP so i can't use this feature, right?
    Okay, but what ist if i will run FCGID?
    E-Accelerator makes Skripts faster and reduces memory and server load.
    BUT how does E-Accelerator work together with MPM Worker or DiskCache?
    Any Idea? If I use E-Accelerator, so i shouldn't use Disk cache?

    And what is better: E-Accelerator with FCGID or DISK Cache with SUPHP?
    I Couldn find an answer to this question...
    Okay, I won't install E-Accelerator because I use SUPHP.

    + IonCube Loader for PHP

    + Mod Bandwidth I want to limit Bandwith to domains. right?

    + Mod Security for security reasons

    + Suhosin for PHP for security reasons

    + Bcmath
    + Bz2

    - CGI
    don't need it anymore because suhosin. right?

    + Calendar
    + Curl
    + CurlSSL
    + FTP

    - Fastcgi dont need because of suhosin

    +Magic Quotes


    +Mysql of the system

    + Openssl
    +Path Info Check

    We are under step 3, dont forget ;)

    At the bottom under preferences i checked:
    *Archive Backup (this session only)
    *Report Errors to cPanel

    Okay, and now I click to

    Save only (Do not build)

    Advice me Please whether my options are good for a Webserver up to 50-100 customers.

    Thank you for reading this posting.

    Yes, those are all good frequently used options and would make for a well rounded setup.

    The only option you may not need is MPM_Worker, this is only recommended if you have Multiple CPU's or threading. The default MPM_Prefork is usually sufficient on most systems.

    I'm confused about all the options. I just have a problem to understand this all.

    Some Questions:

    Mod SuPHP and ModFCGID:
    - i chose mod suphp or modfcgid but not both?

    What ist ModFcgid and fastcgi?

    Mod FCGID is phpsuexec?

    What does PHPsuexec do and
    what does modfcgid do?

    Thank you.

    Other question:
    Wich MPM does need more memory? I think MPM_prefork, right?

    Someone tested both MPM-Versins on his Server with "one" CPU and got better
    benchmark-results with mpmworker:

    Apache prefork vs. worker |
