Subject Re: general/1674: userid used on running php3 files within Apache module

Synopsis: userid used on running php3 files within Apache module

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc
State-Changed-When: Thu Jan 15 19:27:41 PST 1998
State-Changed-Why:
This is more of an issue with php, not Apache.  The normal
way of running things on Unix web servers (eg. CGIs) is to
have them run as the user the server runs as.  For CGIs,
the suexec program can work around it.  PHP is
probably different.

There is no magical way to be able to switch uids without
giving away root if someone compromises the server.
