php scripts are running under apache uid

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have a vps, running directadmin with apache 2 and php 5. It all worked fine, until today, since i discovered that PHP scripts are executed under apache:apache, and not under file's owner uid. This screwed up the entire system, but the main problem is that I can't figure out WHY would suphp stop working suddenly??
