    I'm trying to build (just for fun) a little program to manage a linux box through a web interface.
    The first question that come to my mind is:
    What i need to allow the user to execute superuser commands?

    I guess that set root as user/group on httpd.conf is not a valid option. :rolleyes:

    Then? Anybody knows how Cpanel manage this?

    Thanks in advance.
