No - the whole point is to run the scripts with individual user level permissions. You probably should seek some assistance from a knowledgeable admin for how to do it securely.

For limited admin functionality, you most likely will want to use sudo with a NOPASSWD entry for the SPECIFIC commands that you want to use from the cgi script, but even with that you need to be very careful with how you do it or you're going to open up security holes.

this wrapper, unless I change the owner of all "cgi-bin/*" scripts to "root".

       Hello world!
       I just found cgiwrapper, I was reading this page. at the end of first paragraph it says "...In addition, several
       security checks are performed on the script, which will not be executed if any checks fail. "

       I counld'nt find anything about those "security checks". i'd appreciate it if you guys help me with a link or
