    Hi,

    I am having this problem after i selected the jailshell + mod_ruid2 in the WHM tweak security configurations

    In the apache error log:
    "SecurityException in Application.cpp:186: Do not have root privileges. Executable not set-uid root"

    in any website just an error 500

    what could be the problem?
    I am using suphp, suexec, before I was using fastcgi

    I tried changing the permissions of suphp from 4755 to 6755 but still the same situation

    I am not sure what could be the problem, maybe suhosin, or another setting, before I can't activate ruid2 becasue the bluehost patch apparently was working instead of mod_ruid2

    Hello :)

    Yes, as referenced in those threads, please ensure you do not use suPHP and Mod_Ruid2 at the same time. You can switch to DSO to address this issue. The following document is also helpful:

    Mod_Ruid2

    Thank you.
