Thanks Thomas for the suggestion.

Indeed PHP-FPM is a very useful approach since we dont need to worry 
about suexec or mod_php.

This helps apache and php stock installations and packaging to 
evolve in a modular way.

However, the 'ProxyPassMath' directive cannot be used on a 
<Directory> section.

This effectively means that i cannot have configuration like

<Directory "/home/*/public_html">
     Options All
     AllowOverride All
     Require all granted
     ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ fcgi://*/public_html/$1

How do i effectively use 'ProxyPassMatch' directive ?
