I have just recently found out that suhosin makes sure not to execute php files with file permissions more open than 755. However, I need to temporarily allow someone else FTP access to some files, so I'd need to chmod these to 777. That unfortunately makes the files non-executable by my PHP runtime.

Is there a way to bypass this check (temporarily)?

Specify suhosin.executor.include.allow_writable_files=1 in your suhosin.ini or php.ini, then reload your webserver / php daemon
