As you know there are lot of control panels lying around like Cpanel,

gain root privileges inside the script so that it can be useful if I
want to give my users a DNS editing interface instead of loading a big
bloated control panel.

We use an interface that writes everything to a DB. Then, every 5 minutes, a
cron job comes around and dumps the db and builds the zone files for us.

Might try something similar.  It would be a lot safer then giving root access
via PHP... :)

Hmm that's a great idea. But my question is in general, suppose I get some freelance job to write a control panel for managing httpd, etc.

Same procedure can be used ? I think so ?
