Running Suphp is recommended to run your websites as it is more secure.
SuPHP allows directory to remain owned by user:usergroup and tight 0750 permissions (or even 0700). Furthermore, files created through PHP (uploaded files as well) will be owned by the effective user instead of nobody as they otherwise would be. This allows users to manage/delete/rename these files themselves as a normal cPanel-level user as opposed to requiring root access, or needing a server admin to change the ownership for them.
Sound good? If so, let's get started!
