I have an odd problem with suphp.

I have logged in as tom and added some php to a directory in my web server.

Now I'm getting this error:

Directory /home/.../web/public_html is not owned by tom

I can't/won't change the ownership of public_html as various different users may be contributing to the site in this way.

Is there a configuration in suphp I need to edit in order to allow this to work?

Thank you.

note that if you are letting other users put php into a directory, where it will be run as user tom, you are letting them run arbitrary commands as tom already –  stew Dec 16 '11 at 20:22
As far as I can tell this is a design choice. I think it's stupid to have though. The single document root, along with no symlinks should make this unnecessary lists.marsching.com/pipermail/suphp/2008-April/001831.html –  puk Mar 5 '12 at 3:17

suphp does not have such an option. AFAIK you have to solve it with real users and permissions.

chown root.root /

That command worked for me
