    Hello all,

    Playing around with a multiserver ISPConfig 3 setup on Wheezy. I have a test site running joomla.

    When php is set to "Mod-PHP" all joomla folders and file show up as unwritable. On any other setting php-fpm, fast cgi etc everything looks kosher and is listed as writable.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you as always for your time,

    Thats normal for mod_php as mod_php des not support it to run php scripts as website user, for this reason you wont use mod_php for a website that writes files to disk like cms or shop systems. Another reason for not using mod_php is security. The recommended php modes are php-fcgi or php-fpm with suexec enabled, this ensures that the php scripts are run under the user of the website and not the apache user.
