Hello, i want to enable http2 BUT i need to disable mod_mpm_prefork,mod_ruid2,mod_cgi

This is produce server so i can't playing around with testing.
What is bast practice with this?
What is replacement for prefork ruid and cgi?

I read a lot to replace prefork and someone wrote that will disable htaccess.

What is bast thing to do?

Last WHM/cPanel all updated. CentOS 7. If you need any information please tell.

Thank you, i read it all but i have some concerns like
"So, I tried it with mod_mpm_event noticed that mod_ruid2 is disabled and I would have make permission changes on directories and files so websites can work properly."

What he mean about it?

PHP handlers i have only "cgi" and i have fast cgi module installed.

if i switch to mpm event is there any other change beside permission?
that is server with 200+ accounts and more then 250+ domains
all php versions work on event? i need 5.6,7.0,7.1. 90% websites are wordpress on server

But i'm using ruid2. So when i swich to event i will disable ruid2, what i need to do to change permission or ownership for all accounts?
PHP handlers i have only "cgi" and i have fast cgi module installed.
Hello,

Can you confirm if you are using PHP-FPM, or the mod_fcgid Apache module? The mod_fcgid Apache module is not compatible with Mod_Ruid2, so you wouldn't be able to have both enabled at the same time.

Thank you.

Just thought I should mention that if the OP is thinking of disabling Mod_Ruid2 to enable HTTP2, some other symlink race condition protection might be worth thinking about before proceeding if the only protection is currently from Mod_Ruid2.

Hello,

Here's a link with more information about each PHP handler (including information about the permission requirements):

PHP Handlers - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

Based on the information you provided, you are using the CGI handler with Mod_Ruid2 enabled. Thus, if you were to enable Mod_Http2, you'd still use the CGI handler but Ruid2 would no longer be enabled. Per the above document:

If you install the suEXEC module, the system executes PHP applications as the user that owns the VirtualHost that served the request.

If you uninstall the suEXEC module, the system executes PHP applications as the nobody system user.
I recommend enabling suexec when configuring your new profile in the EasyApache 4 interface so the system still executes PHP applications as the user that owns the VirtualHost that served the request.

Note that you also have PHP-FPM enabled, so you may want to browse to "WHM >> MultiPHP Manager" to verify if any of your domain names are using PHP-FPM as their handler.

Thank you.

Thank you for replay. I'm sorry for i'm late for this replay.

No one use PHP-FPM.
So what i need to do is:
Disable mod_ruid2
Enable suexec
Eneble http2

is that right?
also i read all that stuff before but i don't want to make mistake because it's big problem if domains stop working until next replay on post.

Hello,

That's correct. Note that should you encounter compatibility issues, you can use "WHM >> EasyApache 4" to uninstall HTTP2 and reinstall Mod_Ruid2 again to ensure your system reverts to the previous configuration.

Thank you.
