mod_php or mod_fcgid

Recommended Posts

We run Litespeed which runs something similar to php-fpm when serving PHP.

Good B)

 

We're thinking of moving the site to HTTPS / SSL

Which would require us to purchase another IP address (If I am not mistaken).

 

But in our line of thinking php-fpm / mod_fcgid would be required for proper load balancing of our php (which you seem to have covered). :D

 

I'm just wonder now if you guys are smart enough to also have SPDY?  It's what Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and even Google uses for fast loading SSL.  I would imagine you guys have it already.

As Tony mentioned we run Litespeed. mod_spdy is an Apache-only module (all mod_* are). Even if we did run Apache we'd probably not run mod_spdy as it's going to add some strange complexity in a shared environment. Without testing it the behaviour can be wild.

 

Generally things like mod_spdy would be ran in a custom environment (IE: VPS, server for serving a few specific sites, not thousands).

Accourding to Liespeed, SPDY is a possibility (I contacted them before talking to you).

 

Thank you, you've answered all my questions.
