I have a hosting package at Allinkl.com. On the server PHP runs in version 5.5 as a module. Other versions can be addressed via htaccess.
There is a module as a performer. In the net, however, I found this contradictory.
So what's faster: module or FastCGI?
What would you guess what to use? There is apparently also the problem with use as a module that I have to give the file ownership to the PHP user (www-data), so Shopware file operations (media upload) can do. But then I have no access via FTP?
