Subject [users@httpd] virtual hosts and suexec
Date Mon, 23 Dec 2002 23:05:45 GMT

since a couple of days now I'm trying to figure out how I could solve
following problem. Maybe some has an idea.

I configured several virtual hosts. Everyone has its own DocumentRoot.
Depending on which group you belong to you are able to upload files into the
Now the problem. As far as I know Cgi scripts run as user/group of the
apache webserver. This means that a cgi script can read any file (any file
apache can read) in any other virtual host. How can I prevent this. I know I
can use suexec, but with suexec I have the problem that the filepath (in my
case DocumentRoot) can only be writable from the user configured per virtual
host. This means that only one user could upload files. I need people of a
group to upload files.

Thanks for your help and merry x-mas,
