Yes, putting web apps in /var/www/ is just flat out wrong for at least two reasons I can think of: /var/www is where local content goes. Similar to /usr/local, nothing in /var/www should ever be placed there or modified by the package manager. (Yes, its arguable as to if /var/www is the right place for this stuff. This argument still applies to wherever the "right place" may be) Executables of any kind, whether they be binaries or scripts, simply don't belong anywhere in /var, period. They belong somewhere in /usr, which the truly obsessively paranoid can mount readonly, protecting all binaries.
