    I would like to see everyone opinion about Phpsuexec before I install it on my server. :cool:

    1) Well how many of you guys have installed phpsuexec on your server
    2) Dose all common applications support phpsuexec
    3) What are the pros and cons of having installed on my server? CONS are the most important

    Pro: Better security
    Pro: Better tracking of running scripts and email
    Cons: When using .htaccess authentication, the AUTH_PASSWD and AUTH_USER details aren't passed to the PHP scripts.

    Here are the disadvantages I see, but I still use it:

    Symlinks dont work with PHPSuexec, so for example typo3 needs to installed like on a windows server.

    PHP Configuration in htaccess files dont work anymore, they have to be moved to a php.ini file. Unfortunately this file is not recursive, so it need to be in each directory, where you need them.
