Hi Daniel,
Another option is to compile php as a cgi binary --  and then using it as
you would with any other cgi-script. Then, with suexec enabled, you could
run php scripts under the users uid via suexec. It has to be ran as either a
cgi-script or server-include for suexec to work. Some of the downsides to
this is the shebang is required at the top just as you would with any other
scripting language #!/usr/local/bin/php and you would have to meet all of
suexec's requirements to make it work. Consider php safe mode and other
security options when using php as a cgi binary as found at

I hope this helps.
