comment How to execute php file as different user securely?
OK, your initial explanation led me to think that any customer can actually restore the db from the web application. And the user stuff is more of the kind, that someone might find a way to access this script while not being a user at all of the webpage, If you know what I mean. There is a word for that, that I keep forgetting. When lower tier users and "guests" gain access to administrative components, etc.

comment How to execute php file as different user securely?
Should be OK, but just a word of warning: As this restoration program/script runs with no real supervision, it might be used to lock up the server by calling that function at a very fast rate (i.e. running the PHP file over and over.) You can scold your customers for doing that, but in case there is a way to fake user accounts or meander to that script from "outside", I'd give it a bit more scrutiny.

+1 for the individual user accounts in the database. It is usually a better Idea to have that managed by a script that has access to the db.

comment Tips for putting ~ under source control
Yes, I know it is dated. The question was for a tip on how to do that. I've just told this guy how I've been doing it for many, many years ("dated", hint, hint). It wasn't meant in the way that it's the only reasonable way to do it.

There have been several updates to the mesa packaged since I've posted this question, but it still doesn't work. Has anyone some newer information by now?

No matter where I look, I seem to be unable to find the mesa-8 packages. I guess the only thing I can do at this point, is wait for a fix to be pushed through... Mesa 9.0.2 is on its way, Fedora is usually quite quick in getting this kinda thing done. Let's hope for the best...

That's why I was asking to begin with. It seems the bug kinda sits there, but since the hardware is so old, not many people bother fixing it...
