I am considering to install phpsuexec on my box .. the idea to have php scripts running with user id is cool. but... I have seen that phpsuexec is only an un-supported patch written by a man owner of http://www.localhost.nl/patches . Ok supposing that now phpsuexec is working fine with php 4.3.x , what will happen with future versions of php ? Will we have to depend only on http://www.localhost.nl/patches ? I cannot find php suexec references on apache.org or on php.net . As it seems all servers running phpsuexec depends on the man owner of http://www.localhost.nl . What will happen with php 5.x ? phpsuxec will continue to work fine , http://www.localhost.nl will release a new patch soon ? In this case is not better to continue to use "php safe mode on" or "open_base dir" which are fully and strongly supported by php.net ?
