Yes constrain exactly the locations where you pass the request
upstream to FCGI or another server that handles PHP and/or Perl.

Precede those FCGI/upstream related directives with one (or several)
that serve static files from those locations (static, cache, &c). That
way if someone uploads a file that has a forged magic number (e.g.,
php passing as jpeg) they'll get the file served directly.
