If you can't be bothered to give the "actual reason," then why even reply?

I have searched the archives. Unfortunately, there are so many
messages revolving around how to set up php, secure it, etc. that it
becomes difficult to find anything relevant. The only thing I came
across was a thread from 2007 about how this is "more like a personal
preference than engineering as such"[1] and "its just one of those
things that you learn to live with after a while."[2]
