IIRC, you have to recompile Apache2 (or just the suexec wrapper) to change the Suexec docroot settings.

I don't know about apache2 but with apache 1.3 , you have to patch the source code before compiling it.

Our no doubt crude checklist for doing it is here:


I don't know why allowing group writable cgi-bin files is not a run time option for apache. The alternative is to let people run as root....

For security reasons, they are set
at compile time
