Are you running the PHP scripts as a separate user?  (doesn't look like
it, but I'm not sure.)

Does the PHP user have write access to any script paths?  (I think they
do, but it depends on the answer to the above.)

Do the PHP scripts come from a .deb or a repo of some kind, or are they
installed via "download and untar"?  If the latter, do we have any way
of knowing that we need updates when they get security fixes?
(I suspect the answer is "we got owned by this the last time, may as
well do it the same way again.")

I guess that's OCD kinda like making sure, before you drive the car, it
has seatbelts and a working brake pedal.
