Thanks for the advice, I'll try. However, I am quite certain that administrators not wanting to use suexec for security reasons, or fastCGI for performance reasons, have a way to do so? Otherwise ISPconfig wouldn't give a choice.
It is pretty easy, outside ISPconfig, to assign a primary group to a user. Since ISPconfig creates user accounts, I'd like to know whether there is a way to make it take care of the group assignment? Otherwise, it would be much easily acceptable for me to script it on the server (outside ISPconfig) than to use fastCGI.
Thanks again for your response, and thanks in advance to anyone with an insight about the issue.
