Id like to use SuExec but havent enabled it because of all these tales about it breaking cpanel.

I know interchange would break but we have already killed it.

So, what would be the worse thing to happen IF I enabled SuExec?

cheers ;)

I\'m looking into mod_interchange as a work around for the interchange problem .. that just leaves cgi-sys

CPanel works fine under SuEXEC. The only conflict is that the global scripts that comes with cpanel (guestbook, bbs, etc) wont work. It doesnt affect CPanel itself. That means you cant offer those to clients, which is fine, they can upload their own choices in that case.

I dont see why Nick doesnt at least partially support SuEXEC. It all works great together and security is much better with SuEXEC. People just have to use their heads and realize that certain non-essential items will not work, and not bug Nick about them.

well, you could just stick all the files in the skel-dir and they will be placed into the new account.

I'm using suexec and cgi-sys works fine...

When our CPanel was installed by the rep that we purchased it from, we had him enable suexec, even though he warned us about all of the things that would break becuase of doing it.

After I had one of our admin guys check it out, our admin told me that suexec was NOT setup correctly. Our admin set it up and we haven't seen a problem with anything yet.

Maybe these issues have been worked on the CPanel side.

But we have custom scripts which are called from the control panel that reside in the cgi-sys, and they work great. Interchange works fine too with suexec.

It all sounds great. Maybe you can get your admin to tell us how to set up suexec correctly? ;)

Rebuild apache from layer1.cpanel.net using buildapache.sea if you cpanel was installed before we offered suexec support (or if you just want to upgrade )
---
Verify permissions on /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec being 4755
---
Run /scripts/initsuexec
