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.

	http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/perchild.html

	This module is not functional.  Development of this module is
	not complete and is not currently active.  Do not use perchild
	unless you are a programmer willing to help fix it.     

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