php5.cgi permissions

php5.cgi 755
Because of the setup where the user account is the owner of the process running the php cgi, no other user or group needs access, so we disable all access except execution access. This is interesting because it really works. You can try reading the file, writing to the file, etc.. but the only access you have to this file is to run php scripts. And as the owner of the file you can always change the permission modes back again.
