I'm setting up a new server that will host many different customer sites via
Apache virtual hosts.  I'm trying to decide if I should use SuExe with
Apache, and run PHP and Perl with it, or just to run everyone as the web
server user, and compile PHP (and/or Mod_Perl) as a module.

I understand the security issues of having all Perl and PHP scripts run as
the same user as Apache, but I'm not sure I have a full grasps of the pros
and cons of each setup.

I'm hoping to get opinions, suggestions, etc. about each possible setup,
which I would assume will include some of the safety switches that can be
setup in PHP when compiled as an Apache module.

Any and all info or ideas most appreciated!
