a) full paths b) relative based on user or command
+1 for b) First, it would be a bit like chrooting, so potential exxploits would have harder way to get out of ~vpopmail/. Second, would be easier to user if there was no need for repeting full path everytime.
I disagree. If he chooses b, then you have to worry about what the rights of the current user is when composing commands. If he uses full paths, it doesn't matter what kind of user is at the browser, you always send the same command.
For example, using b to create a VacationMessage file for [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
Sys Admin would send:
The Domain admin would send:
And the user would send:
It would be much easier to write code for using the daemon if everyone always referenced that file using the System Admin example, and you don't have to do the same job three different ways depending on who happens to be logged in.
Remember, there will be a whole bunch of PHP code on top of the daemon.
