Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2 security concern
Date Sat, 12 May 2007 04:01:12 GMT
I am wondernig if apache 2.2 has a means to prevent a user with a site 
hosted on the server, from accessing another users files.  (e.g. I have 
/hosting/user1, and I don't want him to be able to run a script to open 
/hosting/user2/password-file)  I read someplace that there was a mpm for 
apache 1.3 that would restrict the child threads spawned for each 
request to files that could be accessed by a specific user account, but 
I can find no such mpm for apache 2.2.

Thanks in advance for the info!
