19.34. mod_suexec

This module allows Apache to switch the user and group permissions for CGI requests. Apache 2.0 and up.


SuexecUserGroup user group

[server config, within <VirtualHost>]

Specifies the user and group under which CGI programs will be run. This only applies to CGI programs, and not other types of requested executables.

This directive replaces the use of User and Group within virtual host configuration, which was the behavior in Apache 1.3.
