How To Set Up suPHP On A Debian Sarge Based ISPConfig Server
With this howto I explain how to set up suPHP on a Debian based ISPConfig server with php4. Mainly, it is based on Falko's howto http://www.howtoforge.com/apache2_suphp_php4_php5. Within the forums on Howtoforge, lots of information about "setting up suphp" can be found. However, this information is spread all over the forums, so it is not very clear how to set up suphp on an ISPConfig server. It was the reason for me to write this howto. When you've setup suPHP on your ISPConfig server, you are able to run the PHP scripts under the admin user of the website instead of www-data.

Install and Configure Auth Shadow on Debian/Ubuntu
Auth Shadow or mod-auth-shadow is a module for apache (and apache2, sort of) that enables authentication against /etc/shadow. The benefits being that any system user with a password can be authenticated for web_dav, subversion or simply an https server. The only other way to do this is with PAM. That method is dangerous because the apache user (www-data in my case) must be able to read /etc/shadow. Obviously, not a good idea. Auth Shadow accomplishes this safely by using a intermediate program called validate. This works because validate can be owned by root but executable by everyone. In the event that your server is compromised through apache, your password file will not be readable.
