Package contents description

There is a set of patches over Apache 2 component suexec. It's distrbuted under same license, stated in debian/copyright file.

The "master" branch contains all the features available.

Branches described below should be considered as tags (development stages):

loosen

less security checks.

Options:

  • AP_SUEXEC_SKIP_DOC_ROOT_CHECK: scripts which are executed on behalf of vhost owner may reside in arbitrary directory
  • AP_SUEXEC_EXEC_ROOT: allow execute of root-owned scripts on behalf of vhost owner

rlimit

new features to limit the number of processes, memory and cputime

Options:

  • AP_SUEXEC_RLIMIT_MEMORY_META Memory (in bytes), e.g. 268435456
  • AP_SUEXEC_RLIMIT_NPROC_SOFT Number of processes, e.g. 53
  • AP_SUEXEC_RLIMIT_CPU_SOFT CPU Time, e.g. 330

cgroups

new features to execute processes in cgroup context unsing cgrulesengd or hardcoded values

Options:

  • AP_SUEXEC_CGROUPS_FAST (hardcoded)
  • AP_SUEXEC_CGROUPS (cgrulesengd)
  • AP_SUEXEC_CGROUPS_FAST_PATH (must be specified in suexec.h)
  • AP_SUEXEC_CGROUPS_FAST_CONTROLLERS (must be specified in suexec.h)

The exact set of features which should be compiled in the executable is tuned in the Makefile. Hardcoded values for cgroups are set in suexec.h.

It makes sense to build suexec as debian package, otherwise (if you want to compile things manually) the list of dependencies can be found in debian/control file.

Happy restricting!
