           Summary: Suggestion: mod_suexec SuexecUserGroup directive in the
                    <Directory> section
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.52
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_suexec
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dan1@edenpics.com


Hello.

This is not a bug but merely a suggestion.
I am trying to install some software and I realise that it would be beautiful 
to be able to define the SuexecUserGroup from the mod_suexec module not only 
in the VirtualHosts, but also in the <Directory> sections.
However, this should most probably be a feature for the httpd.conf ONLY, and 
not in the .htaccess, to avoid having people getting rights that they are not 
allowed to have.

Maybe there is another better way to do this, but my goal would be to be able 
to run CGIs with another user or group ID than apache. I don't like the 
<VirtualHost> mean to do that, because we cannot do an SSL connection if we 
have only one IP address. Therefore putting SuexecUserGroup in the <Directory> 
tag would be a great solution to overcome those problems, if there is not too 
many security concerns about it (I don't know).
We can see that problem typically when installing the 'sympa' mailing list 
software.

Thanks for listening.
Regards,
Daniel
