    Only i have only access to a directadmin server with many clients and the server is not mine.
    If somebody have a server with not many clients and a down time from 30 min is no problem in the night (GMT+1) than i will install it on the server and make a howto from it.

    EDIT 1 : Maybe the mod should move the thread to the HowTo section ?
    EDIT 2 : Forgot one step. See step 8
    EDIT 3 : Forgot an option on suPHP ./configure
    EDIT 4 : Changed the way to install suPHP. Now everything should work perfectly!

    Here are the steps I did to make suPHP work with Redhat 9.0 :

    1- Get suPHP :

    2- Unpack the archive and enter into the created directory :
    tar -zxvf suphp-0.5.tar.gz ; cd suphp-0.5/

    3- Copy your current php bin :
    cp -p /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/bin/php.CLI

    - Download, extract php CGI :
    Make sure you are running Redhat9.0 and you are using PHP 4.3.4 :
    tar -zxvf CGI-php-v4.3.4-rh9.tar.gz ; cp -fp CGI-php-v4.3.4-rh9/php /usr/local/bin/php.CGI

    If you are not using Redhat 9 or you're not using the same PHP version, you can download your PHP version, configure then make. The CGI php version is located under : [PHP-Directory]/sapi/cgi/php

    4- Configure suPHP to your system :
    ./configure --with-apache-user=apache --with-php=/usr/local/bin/php.CGI --disable-checkpath --disable-checkuid --disable-checkgid --with-min-uid=0 --with-min-gid=0

    5- Make :

    6- Before doing make install, please keep a backup of your httpd.conf :
    cp -p /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.bak

    7- Make install suPHP :
    make install

    8- Edit your httpd.conf
    - vi or pico /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    locate :
    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .inc .php .php4 .php3 .phtml
    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
    and replace with :
    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
    suPHP_Engine on
    AddHandler x-httpd-php .php
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .inc .php .php4 .php3 .phtml
    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
    9- Change 1 setting in your php.ini (!! Make sure you are editing the right php.ini file !!):
    vi or pico /usr/local/lib/php.ini

    find :

    ;cgi.force_redirect =
    and change it to :

    cgi.force_redirect = 0
    10- Restart httpd :
    service httpd restart

    suPHP log is installed under /etc/httpd/logs/suphp_log
