5 As the PHP maintainer, I fully support going to Apache2 as default.
7 The only problems that exist at all with PHP and Apache2 is using a
8 non-standard MPM (any of the threaded ones) with a non-threadsafe
9 library. Presently there are only two non-threadsafe libraries
10 (net-snmp, mcrypt) I am aware of that you can build PHP against, and
11 both of them are working towards being threadsafe very soon now, if they
12 aren't already.
14 This problem with non-threadsafe libraries isn't limited to Apache2
15 anyway, it can easily happen to any other program (I have seen it with a
16 few things).
