This isn't the only way. I run PHP using sbox-dtc (a CGI wrapper), and a
chroot template mounted using AUFS. This is very efficient, and you
don't need to run each PHP program under a different user (since all
scripts are executed in a chroot). This also has protected some of my
users from silly wordpress php script upload security issues (as an
example), because sbox checks if the the PHP scripts are executable.

Please don't assume that *your* config is the one that everyone uses (or
the only one which is safe).



P.S: I agree with Ondrej that there's no point in this:
