    Hi,

    I am setting up my VPS and have come to the below section, I don't have PHPSuexec and it was not an option but I think I setup suphp as it is in my options and I also setup suhosin

    Can I tick the below and will it let PHP script send out normally ?


    Prevent the user "nobody" from sending out mail to remote addresses (PHP and CGI scripts generally run as nobody if you are not using PHPSuexec and Suexec respectively.) to remote addresses (PHP and CGI scripts generally run as nobody if you are not using PHPSuexec and Suexec respectively.)


    Regards,

    If you are running SuPHP for PHP and SuExec for CGI scripts (for those folks using Perl and other CGI apps), that setting should have no adverse affect on legitimate users.
