suexec is a good thing for security, but it can be a bit tricky to
configure and set up. It also illustrates why I don't like using
packages, like rpm, deb, or whatever else is out there. There are
some things, like suexec where the configuration is compiled into the
binary, rather than being in a config file someplace. So if you use a
binary that you did not compile yourself, you may also need to accept the
same "world view" as the person who compiled it. So for things like
apache, sendmail, samba, etc. I prefer to just get the source,
configure it myself, and compile it. I find that I have less trouble
doing it that way and learn a little be more in the process.
Just my 2 cents. I'm glad that you got it working.
