    End of life
    I would hereby like to inform you that these patches have become unmaintained. There is another project (which is being run by someone else) called suphp. It basically does the same things, but better. You can find it here http://www.suphp.org/Home.html .



    Any comment ?

    I am using "php safemode on" for now without phpsuexec or suphp.
    I am waiting that darkorb/cpanel will support suphp via easyapache .

    Once apache 2.0 support is fully functional it won't be necessary, right?

    Billy indicated to me yesterday that nick is aware of it and that it's probable that suphp will be built into apache in time. However he also said he would maintain phpsuexec

    Actually, I'm wrong about that, I was referring to a problem suphp had in the past that they've now fixed.

    For those that do run it, don't ignore the following from their own documentation:

    I think that this could apply to all your linux commands too ...

    I instead want underline what the phpsuexec author wrote about suphp

    It (suphp) basically does the same things, but better

    so does suEXEC, you going to remove that from all machines? It actually should be pretty secure still, we are looking at it more and more.

    No, they don't. You should read up on suid.
    True, but that is developed and maintained by the Apache group - I trust them more than a few lone developers.

    What we really need is for either the PHP or Apache Developers to pull their fingers out and develop a secure method of running PHP in a virtualhost environment.
