run perl under a different user? Can't Post

I'm trying to configure a apache-web-server (linux) with perl. I created a html-based user-interface and i'm able to create directories and to modify the *.conf files. But I can't get the perl-script to restart the webserver (apachectl graceful). The log file always says "operation not permitted". How can i make the perl script running und super-user or something else....?

If you configured Apache with suEXEC, the you can use the User and Group directives to change whom that VirtualHost executes scripts as.

Alternately, you can set your script setuid (ie, chmod 4755 my.cgi). Do a man chmod for more details.
