I'm wanting to make a web based configuration tool for my wireless routers

technical users.

I've read the how to use Webmin with apache, didnt quite folllow the
procedure, but bear with me..

chown scripts to root (chown -R root:root /var/www/cp)
chmod w/suid (chmod -R 755 /var/www/cp)

add -U flag to perl line, what does this do? is there a php knob like this?
What is the "perl line"....?  What does it do?  PHP can certainly
do chmod and chown ....

find . -name "*.cgi" -o -name "*.pl" | perl perlpath.pl "/usr/bin/perl -U" -

Its from the webmin docs, on how to run webmin through apache, it goes
through the scrips and add -U to the #!/usr/bin/perl line in each script.

Is something similar needed to achieve the same effect with php? (The goal
is to have the php script execute with root privelegies)

chown the scripts back to www (chown -R www:www /var/www/cp)
chmod rwx to www (chmod -R 700 /var/www/cp)

or am I stuck with compiling apache with D_BIG_SECURITY_HOLE?
