[lug] AWStats and Permisions

I'm using AWStats (awstats.sourceforge.net) to report access for my
customers that my company hosts. The program awstats.pl runs in the
/cgi-bin directory which resides in the websites home directory. When it
processes the websites log files it stores the result in
The directory /tmp/awstats/website has permissions 777 because when you go
to http://website/cgi-bin/awstats.pl it will refresh (compile the logs into
a file readable by AWStats) and save the statistics to /tmp/awstats/website.
Does anybody use this program? Is there a way I can get it to run without
the 777 permisions on the /tmp/awstats/website directory? Would I use a
<Directory> tag in the httpd.conf file to allow people to only write into
/tmp/awstats/website with awstats log files? How would I do this.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
