i want to know how to setup apache with suexec for user directories(~userdir)

Feb 24th, 2003 19:18
Joshua Slive, Brandon Saccone,

In general, configuring suexec involves three steps:
1. compiling apache with suexec included (and possibly mod_suexec
if you are using Apache 2).
2. If you are using virtual hosts, specify the User/Group (or, for 2.0 
the SuexecUserGroup) to set the correct userid.
3. Make sure all the (many) security requirements listed in the 
above referenced doc are met.
Then any cgi request to a userdir (starting with ~) or to a virtual
host should go through suexec.
