Using fastcgi with apache isn't rocket science either:
with fastcgi you can run your workers under a given user account, you can
use per vhost php.ini, and so fort, general fastcgi/php rules apply.

for the VC9 build howto see (I'm
not 100% sure, that it's up-to-date)

some info from the ASF guys on the topic:

William A. Rowe Jr builds the official windows apache binaries, and he is
fine/endorses the apachelounge builds:!/wrowe/statuses/32125486473678849!/wrowe/statuses/32141366133788672!/wrowe/statuses/32141531892682752

btw. Tom Donovan is part of both of the ASF ( and the apacheloung ( 33) so I think
that it is as close to the official builds as you can get.
it would be a good thing if the soon coming up apache 2.4 would come with a
greater variety of windows builds, but it seems that it will skip VC9(if
Rowe won't drop the windows builds entirely), so I think the official
windows build would be incompatible with the php project on the short/mid

fortunately I'm fine with the apachelounge builds.
