Warning: This setting conflicts with the server-wide security policy

    Why would changing PHP handler be considered to conflict with the server-wide security policy in all cases?

    I can understand a warning if you chose to use mod_php in place of php_fcgi or php-fpm, but I cannot see a reason for the warning when you change from, for example, php_fcgi 5.3 (vendor) to 5.6 php-fpm (Plesk repo).

    Hello @Turgut
    This warning is a security one and it's expected behavior.
    To avoid this warning, you can enable Setup of potentially insecure web scripting option in the Plesk > Service Plans > [service plan name] > Permission (tab), as is mentioned in the article.

    Though on our UserVoice portal there is a suggestion to enable security policy management per subscription instead of server-wide. If this suggestion seems important to you, you can vote for it:

    Top-ranked suggestions are likely to be implemented in future versions of Plesk.
