Always talking about the new php 5.4: using the SetHandler Directive as suggested in the blog does cause any delay compared to a native application of the kind Static/CGI/PHP-5.4 ? If so, such delay can be measured? For better performance is it advisable to create a new application, move there all the files and update website configuration or is it not worth migrating because of the imperceptible difference?
thanks and regards

By making the change as described in our blog post you are just telling the application to use PHP5.4 instead of the default php which is PHP5.2. You should not see any performance differences.

You will not see the change in the Control Panel for the version of php used. If you have an app of type Static/CGI/PHP-5.3, for example, it will still be Static/CGI/PHP-5.3 after making the change in the .htaccess file. The only way to update that would be to create a completely new app with Static/CGI/PHP-5.4 as your app type and migrate your application over to the new app.
