As we celebrate 20 years of the Apache httpd server, another project is also celebrating 20 years: PHP. For better or worse (depending on your own personal preferences), PHP is here to stay for the foreseeable future. According to w3techs.com, PHP is still used as the server-side language on 82% of sites!

Most operating systems include ports and packages for both httpd and PHP, and the most common way to combine the #1 web server and #1 server-side language is with the Apache module. This has caused many issues with things such as threading, resource usage, and security. In this talk Jim will describe and demonstrate the conversion of a site from mod_php inside httpd to PHP-FPM via mod_proxy_fcgi. This conversion allows you to treat PHP like the application it is and let httpd do what it does best: serve content quickly and efficiently. It is time to finally do away with mod_php!
