Question apache php + suphp/suexec > totally lost

hi guys/girls

I have been reading all over the web for a decent method on how to run a script as a different user, but I'm totally lost now ...

My objective:
- Apache server (running as user apache) with php webpage > ok
- php webpage has to launch bash script (bash script has to be executed as different userX:groupY) > not ok
- I'm on red hat 6.4

I understand that I should get something like suexec or suphp and set the suuid bit on the script.

> However this raises my first question, at one point in time I was able to launch the script by suexec, but it would only execute as root.
I never managed to get it working under the userX:groupY
Is this normal?
> if somebody could help me out with this and also with the php part, cause my php knowledge is a bit light it seems, I would be very happy
