All of Web Hosting Hub's servers utilize the suPHP configuration for running PHP. With suPHP, scripts (programs) are run as a CGI (Common Gateway Interface).
We utilize suPHP on our servers because it is a more secure way to run PHP scripts. In suPHP, file permissions can be set more securely. On servers where PHP runs as "nobody" files have to be set with insecure permissions like 777 or 666. This can leave your site vulnerable because it makes it easier for someone to add code and compromise your site.
On a suPHP server you can set your folder and file permissions more securely while still being able to execute scripts on your site. In the suPHP environment, your user (cPanel user name) will have the needed permissions to read, write, and execute your files.
Mod_PHP is a configuration where PHP runs as an Apache module. If you are coming from a host who used Mod_PHP instead of suPHP, there are a few things you will want to know about how suPHP differs from Mod_PHP:
