How to create a privilaged user?

Post by Nobod » Thu, 11 Jul 2002 04:23:45

I'm trying to install wine on my laptop and I'm using the recommended
./tools/wineinstall script to do so. The problem is when I run this script I

./configure: cannot create permission denied

If I try install this as root it says root user not allowed please try again
as a user.

So how do I get around this?

    cd /usr/ports/emulators/wine; make install

should handle it nicely.  :)

1. PHP as Apache Module with user privilages

I am looking into the extensive use of PHP on a server.  The server
will be running apache on linux.  This will be a server that supports
client web pages.  I would like to be able to set it up so that the
user php scripts run as the user.  The only way I can see that this
would work is to use it as a CGI script running under suexec.  This
doesn't impress me as being any better than letting everything run as
the default user.  Is there a way to make this work?
