crontab - permission problems


New Member
Can anyone give me some advice on how to setup a crontab to run as a specific user or a way to get around permission problems.

I have files on my server that I want deleted via cron. These files have owner/group permission of 'apache' as they're created by the web server. When I run a cron it says permissions denied.

Any suggestions?

P.s. these files I want deleted are created by a set of PHP scripts that I really can't easily modify to change permissions that way.
