change ownership on files written by apache/php to maintain effective quotas


Hi, I have a webserver running apache2 with php4.3.10 in gentoo linux. I also have several users who run php scripts that allow uploading pictures. I am also trying to implement quotas on my ext3 filesystem. However, When each picture is uploaded it is given the user and group 'apache'. All of these components are working correctly, but since the uploaded files are being assigned the user and group 'apache' users are able to surpass their quotas as 'apache' is not their user or group. I was wondering if there was a way to set up php/apache so that uploaded files would have their user and group automatically assigned the appropriate user and group such that my quotas can be effective.

Thanks,
Michael

to clarify -- i was using mod_php.

After spending a bit longer searching around, ive found 2 possible solutions. Using suPHP, however i am not sure if it is ready for use at large scales, or installing php cgi instead of mod_php and using suexec. Both of these solutions will enable me to run the php scripts with a user other than the apache user, and in my case, allow me to put my quotas to use. I am still looking for a solution in which i can still use mod_php ... but i am leaning toward using php-cgi.

Any ideas/ tips?
