Does anyone know how to define a PHP script (within itself) to run as a
certain user. Currently my PHP scirpt runs as "nobody" and I need to change
the user it runs as temporarily to get certain permissions to update a file.

A running script cannot change its own permissions, and if accessed from the
browser will always run as Apache allows (which is generally
nobody/nogroup). What you need to do is change the permission/owner of the
file that you're trying to update with either chown(), chmod(), or both.
