Have just enabled the php suexec option for my server and have got almost everything working with my CMS except for one last function. Spent a solid 24 hours trying to figure it out but I'm a wannabe system admin and php hack at best. =) I give up. If someone can get the fopen/flock function that my image module (written in php) uses for image rotation working again (am getting permission errors) with suexec - I'll gladly pay you. If you're not already familiar with suexec and the other related issues I mentioned, please do not apply. For the right person this is probably a fairly easy issue, but susexec has some weird stuff and it's own learning curve if you're not familiar with it.
