     suexec - switch user for Apache CGI execution


     suexec -V


     suexec is the "wrapper" support program for the suexec behaviour for the
     Apache httpd(8) server. It is run from within the server automatically to
     switch the user when an external program has to be run under a different

     The options are as follows:

     -V      Display the list of compile-time settings used when suexec was
             built. No other action is taken.

     Because this program is only used internally by httpd(8), there are no
     other ways to directly invoke suexec.

     In order to work correctly, the suexec binary should be owned by "root"
     and have the SETUID execution bit set. OpenBSD currently does not install
     suexec with the SETUID bit set, so a change of file mode is necessary to
     enable it:

           # chmod u+s /usr/sbin/suexec
