I have not been using PHP for long but already instaled a few application.
I am planning to change hosting company and the new company mentionned that PHP is compiled as cgi instead of a module.
What are the consequences for my existing applications?

perhaps you could miss some server-generated variables (generally not important).
i have heard, that the cgi-version runs not as fast as the module version (prob of the provider). if you are not a "hardcore"-php3-programming-freak nothing happens!

Biggest problem is you loose the ability to use HTTP authentication.
Nothing that can't be worked around. Just that if you are using HTTP authentication it's a major pain to convert that to a session type system.
