I have a python flask application (https://github.com/Ottermad/PeterWakefieldSite on 188.8.131.52) which does allows a user to upload a file a then call a ruby program (https://github.com/benbalter/word-to-markdown) on that file. However, the terminal program needs root user permissions. So how can either configure my VPS to either run as root or how to mod the terminal app to not need root permissions.
