    Hi All,

    I'm trying to get few understandings:

    If I run php with phpSuExec which means it runs as cgi, does that mean that the users can only run calls as themselves?

    I mean more specifically, when a user is making a call through Apache, is the user limited to run the nobody user as with his own previleges only?

    The reason I ask is because I had php Safe_mode enabled for all users, but some of them need to use Gallery or some other calls that require the safe_mode to be diabled.

    The question is,. what is the risk envolved with running with safe_mode disabled.

    Your contribution to this is greatly appreciated.
