Moderator Note: I'm not a professional developer but I'm a hobbyist dabbling in various Web development projects. You may be reading about security and performance issues and wondering the best route to go. My personal preference is a host that uses <a href="http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/suexec.html">PHPSuExec</a>.
Some resources you may wish to browse:
<a href="http://ca.php.net/manual/en/security.cgi-bin.php">PHP Manual - Installed as CGI binary</a>
<a href="http://ca.php.net/manual/en/security.apache.php">PHP Manual - Installed as an Apache module</a>
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SuEXEC">suEXEC from Wikipedia</a>
Google search for <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=php+cgi+vs+apache+module">php cgi vs apache module</a>
