For anyone struggling with getting suPHP and Plesk 8 happening together – I have a solution.
I have found this excellent, although slightly out-dated, article.
While it was pretty much spot on the money, I will add a couple of pointers.
Firstly – the latest RPMs can be downloaded from here. The article points to an older release on RHEL3 – I needed one on RHEL4 and the latest stable version.
Secondly – if you are trying to host something like PickPic (check it out here!), this is most definitely the solution for you.
The guys (and gals I assume) at PickPic have been very helpful… they were adamant that uploading files with 777 permissions was a bad idea and that we should really work towards a better solution. This article… way too many pages deep in a Google search in my opinion… is that solution.
I am just waiting for my hosting customer to check back with PickPic and let me know whether it is all now working for them. Â Fingers crossed, prayers said, etc etc!
I am awaiting on a confirmation from the other guy to see if I can reproduce the content of his post here!
