Ok.. I've been chasing my tail here for a while now and I'm tired of running in circles ..LOL! I've got suexec working fine for perl scripts but PHP scripts for some reason won't write to a file or a directory that is chmodded 755. If I chmod to 777 it works fine--but I don't want to do that! What am I missing? Centos 5.5 "perfect server", Apache 2, PHP 5.16 ISPC-2 Thanks in advance for a solution!
