I would like to use the file_manager plugin _without_
assigning the managed files to apache/nobody/www user/group,
so as to retain proper owner and group for the files.
I know (as of today) nothing about php, apache and users
interactions, but as some php scripts allow ones to manage
their webpage on site without requiring root rights, it might
As far as I did understand throught my digging, it lies in the
fact that php is run by apache as apache user whereas it would
need to run as real local user, right?
Thanks for any thoughts/remarks.

The only way you can really do that is to use suexex in PHP/Apache so
that you can run the php binary as the user that wants to manage the
files. Unfortunately there are security risks involved, and you must
compile PHP as a CGI module.
