    I installed phpsuxec but I have some problem.

    php files on /public_html folders (no problem on subfolders) generates an internal server error (500) .

    To solve the problem I have to change
    /public_html "group" from nobody to user
    and chmod /public_html from 750 to 755 .

    Could it cause some security problems these changes ?

    Is there any script on /scripts to change these permissions required to remove the phpsuexec internal server error on /public_html ?

    Thank you! Support Ticket Number: phpsuexec problems

    Well, yes and no. PHPSUEXEC causes a script to run under its own user, so it helps to track down users who are doing bad things such as snooping, etc. So, it is good for security in that reference. Being able to "track" the users of php scripts is very valuable in a shared hosting environment.
