this is a webserver topic and nothing 
php itself can control as it inherits
the user settings from the webserver 
it runs in or is started from
when run as cgi you have some control
via apaches suexec(?) config options
but unless you run php cgi as root
(which is a very bad idea IMHO) there
is no way to have PHP itself control
the process user settings

It's be nice to be able to run a PHP script as a specific user, perhaps a user 
specified user.  It would have to authenticate username and password, but then instead 
of CHMODding our directories and files for file uploads, an upload script could behave 
as the owner of those directories...
