your scripts have to have to be readable by your apache user/group if it
can't read them then it can't run them. now as for being allowed to only
view files of yours, you would want to place the apache user in your group.
this will give it access to read your files, but so will others running
apache, ie a person writes a php script that is ran by apache and then can
read your files because the process is running as the apache user which can
see your files. so, to answer your question, no, there isn't a simple way
to do this.

Subject: [PHP] Access rights for php files on Linux?
> Well, I have encounterd a problem which is quite big (for me), so I hope
> I find help here.
> My setup is a Linux Machine, running Apache with php as a module.
> In order for the webserver to parse the file, i have to give read
> permission to world.
> This is a problem, because about 100 people have shell access and could
> then just cat /www/myphpfile.php, and would thus get passwords which i
> dont want to share (like mysql password in the phpmyadmin config file)
> and general access to my code. Also, the different users on the machine
> want to be able to host php files with everyone else being able to read
> them. Is there any way i can actually do that?
> I must say that i am rather new to all this stuff, so i am really
> confused as what to do, and i would appreciate any help..
