    File security with mod_php could be resolved by using other modules like mod_ruid2 which will enable every web site to work under its user owner such as FastCGI.

    Mod_php still needed in some scenarios such as when using a shared folder among web sites, some companies use Plesk to manage their own web sites and not as a shared hosting platform, so they have shared folders among web sites to store shared big images folders among web sites, I have a like scenario which a folder of 150G is shared among about 8 web sites.

    Hello @Fouad, 

    As it is stated in this article, Apache doesn’t allow multiple versions of PHP using mod_phpmod_php can be enabled only for OS PHP.
    To enable mod_php for OS PHP check Apache handler is not available in Plesk article.

    Please, note that enabling the mod_php Apache handler is not safe as it is outdated and insecure.
    Check this article for instructions to add PHP modules.
