It seems like fcgi the preferred method as opposed to the php dll?

Is it that much faster or handle more hits over the dll?

As far as I know it's preferred because some php scripts can crash php, the dll is running inside the Apache process so Apache goes down with it.

fcgid creates a separate process for php, php crashes yet Apache stays up and running.

with fcgid you can run any version/build of php that the computer supports so you don't have to worry about things like openssl version in Apache vs what version php is compiled against.

An added bonus is you can have more than one version of php. You can't do that if you LoadModule the dll.
