could you drop the command into a spool, then run it off a queue?
Interesting idea. Can you point to any docs that describe how to set up a batch queue in
Linux al la VMS batch queue?
did you try setting the s(et)uid bit of the script?
yeah didn't work. I placed the 'id' command in the top of the script and it doesn't report
the id as 'matlab' it still reports it to be apache. Even though ls -l shows the script to
be owned by matlab group apache and rwsrws---
I vaguely recall that chmod +s is only valid for binaries as the command being executed is
bash, the script is just a data file to bash. I could be wrong on this one though...
apache also has suexec, which might also help you.
Hmmm, looks like this might be the one but there's some pain ahead I suspect.
Thanks for the suggestions
