Yeah it does:-

PHP Options : Specify which PHP modes should be available for the client when he creates/modifies a web site. The following four modes are available: Fast-CGI, CGI, Mod-PHP, SuPHP.

Fast-CGI:


Advantages:

Scripts will be executed with user privileges of the web site;
More than one PHP version can be run as FastCGI;
Might be better in speed compared to CGI and suPHP.

Disadvantages:

php.ini values cannot be changed via PHP scripts, vhost files, .htaccess files. But it
is possible to use the Custom php.ini settings field on the Options tab of a web
site in ISPConfig to specify custom php.ini settings (see chapter 4.6.1.1).


CGI:

Advantages:

Scripts will be executed with user privileges of the web site;
More than one PHP version can be run as CGI.

Disadvantages:

CGI might use a little more memory (RAM) - therefore, it's not recommended to run PHP as CGI on slow virtual servers;
php.ini values cannot be changed via PHP scripts, vhost files, .htaccess files. But it
is possible to use the Custom php.ini settings field on the Options tab of a web
site in ISPConfig to specify custom php.ini settings (see chapter 4.6.1.1).


Mod-PHP:

Advantages:

Speed;
Needs less memory (RAM) than CGI;
php.ini values can be changed via PHP scripts, vhost files, .htaccess files.

Disadvantages:

Scripts are being executed with Apache privileges, which might lead to somesecurity related problems;
Only one version of PHP can be installed as Apache module;
You cannot use the Custom php.ini settings field on the Options tab of a web
site in ISPConfig to specify custom php.ini settings (see chapter 4.6.1.1).


SuPHP:

Advantages:

Scripts will be executed with user privileges of the web site;
Each vhost can have its own php.ini file;
Needs less memory (RAM) than CGI;
More than one PHP version can be run as suPHP.

Disadvantages:

php.ini values cannot be changed via PHP scripts, vhost files, .htaccess files. But it
is possible to use the Custom php.ini settings field on the Options tab of a web
site in ISPConfig to specify custom php.ini settings (see chapter 4.6.1.1);
SuPHP might be a little slower than mod_php.

Recommendations:

High-Traffic Web Sites: Fast-CGI + suExec
Low-Traffic Web Sites: CGI + suExec or SuPHP
