But what about security questions with fast-cgi?
When you enable suexec as I recommended above, then fastcgi runs the php binary under the web user like suphp is doing it, so its as secure as suphp but faster.

And how I can to see which user run script in htop or top (now I see only that is www-data)?
The processes that you have seen are most likely apache processes and apache runs always as www-data. The php cgi scripts spawned by suphp run only a very short time, so you might not see them at all.

If you switch to fastcgi, then you can see the processes and their owners with top, as fastcgi processes run a loner time as they were reused for new php processing requests.
