[ale] Please Help



if php is compiled as an apache module, you're outta luck afaik..... there's 
nothing to chmod +s, and suexec doesn't work on mod_php (? never tried 
myself, but that's what I've heard).

if you've compiled it as a standalone executable, you can always chmod +s 
/usr/local/bin/php, but then all your scripts run as that uid, which is 
typically not good. (anyone know if apache will even accept an interpreter 
that has the +s bit?)

Suexec with standalone php is probably the best option.  That will allow you 
to designate a certain directory or virtualhost as setuid, while leaving all 
other php scripts alone.
