NAME

       suexec - Switch user before executing external programs

SYNOPSIS

       suexec -V

SUMMARY

       suexec  is  used  by the Apache HTTP Server to switch to another user before executing CGI
       programs. In order to achieve this, it must run as root. Since the  HTTP  daemon  normally
       doesn't  run  as root, the suexec executable needs the setuid bit set and must be owned by
       root. It should never be writable for any other person than root.

       For further information about the concepts and and the security  model  of  suexec  please
       refer to the suexec documentation (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/suexec.html).

OPTIONS

       -V     If  you  are root, this option displays the compile options of suexec. For security
              reasons all configuration options are changeable only at compile time.
