    In my case, I'm not using phpsuexec. I know the pros and cons of using that and don't want to get into that conversation here. Essentially, there's only about 80 domains on the server and I am the sole developer for all of them, so I'm comfortable enough without phpsuexec for now.

    One downside though is not getting accurate disk usage stats for sites that have photo gallery type applications, where the uploaded images are owned by nobody and not the user.

    I've thought that as a work-around, I could put a file in cron.daily with the following

    chown -R user:nobody /home/user/public_html/images
    chmod -R g+w /home/user/public_html/images

    Is that a stupid idea, or OK? I'm just curious as to other opinions.
