Subject RE: looking for mpm-perchild info
Date Thu, 20 May 2004 18:50:16 GMT
I saw the note. Nice choice of words they chose ;)

CGI/suexec is not sufficient for me since I still cannot run as root. I
know there are other options that would probably be easier, but I think
the mpm would work better, plus it would be awesome for virtual hosting
as well if I could get it working. My need is to be able to run mod_php
as root. (and before I get torched, I am well aware of the security
risks.) Which I can not do with suexec. It would probably be easier to
break suexec than make perchild work, but I don't like that plan.

According to the docs, it looks like it became too broke to fix.

	This module is not functional.  Development of this module is

And maybe the programmers feel that a CGI/suexec combo is a good enough
replacement for the perchild MPM.  I dunno.
