Subject suexec error logging
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2003 18:45:50 GMT
Is there any particular reason why suexec can't log an error to stderr as
well as to its own logfile?  I guess it could be a way to find out some
information about file permissions that would not ordinarily be available.
What about writing "suexec failure; see suexec_log for more details" to
stderr?

The point is that "premature end of script headers" is the current
contents of the error log for suexec failures.  This catch-all error is
really quite unhelpful, and results in lots of extra debugging time.  It
is especially bad because many third-party packagers enable suexec by
default; so many people are using it without even knowing it.

Joshua.
