    1818Our approach uses symlinks instead. It is designed to work with suexec, in which the PHP process running runs with the privileges of the user who owns the file.

    20 Using our approach, every member has their own web directory, which they control. The web directory contains symlinks to all the top level directories in Drupal core (`includes`, `misc`, etc.) except for the files and sites directories - these are real directories under the control of the user. In addition, each top level file (`index.php`, `cron.php`, etc) is symlinked in the user's web directory, but with the name `index.drupal.php`, `cron.drupal.php`, etc. Finally, every top level file is created and owned by the user with the original Drupal name (`index.php`, `cron.php`) and with a simple one line of php code which includes the Drupal symlink. For example, `index.php` contains:
    21 {{{
    22 require_once('index.drupal.php');
    23 }}}
