    Has anyone been able to run suphp from ram on linux?

    Here's what I done.

    I copied the entire folder suphp to the ram disk (in /dev/shm folder) from the /opt folder with all permissions intact. I also copied this elsewhere on the server as a backup. I then deleted suphp from opt.

    Then I tried the following of which neither worked:

    1. I made a symbolic link to suphp on the ram disk and named the link as suphp.

    2. I created an empty suphp folder then I used mount bind to connect the suphp folder on the ram disk to the empty suphp folder.

    In both cases, i received error messages in my apache error_log along the lines of:

    "(13)Permission denied: couldn't create child process: /opt/suphp/sbin/suphp for (insert website filename here)"

    Can anyone tell me how I can successfully make suphp execute from a ram disk instead of an actual disk?

    I don't want to mess my setup (like switching from suphp to dso or fastcgi) because the server contains web
    accounts managed by multiple users and I don't want hacking involved.

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate more on why you want to move the location of suPHP? Is there some benefit to doing this, or are you just after disk space?

    Thank you.
