Rather than using PHP to do a setuid/setgid (which it can't do IIRC), change
the permissions on one of your catalogues to be writeable by the httpd-user,
and use that as your /tmp catalogue (/tmp is usually worldwriteable), however
be sure that your script cleans up after itself, otherwise you'd slowly 
fill up the
harddrive of the webserver (unless you write the same file evey time).
