Subject suexec cannot log errors if execv fails (BUG #10744)
Date Thu, 24 May 2007 17:52:15 GMT
there is a very old bug report at, which applies 
to 'suexec' of all versions of Apache!

When the 'execv' of suexec fails, suexec isn't able to log the 
errormessage correctly, because it already has been closed and suexec 
dropped it's privileges to reopen it!

I am not the original poster of this problem (who described it for 
version 1.3.X), but I just noticed the problem under version 2.2.4 and 
added a patch for it for your convenience...

So what do you think? Isn't it time to close a five year old bug? :-)

Have fun,

P.S.: And while looking at suexec: Don't you think it's also time to 
correct (gid is 
incorrectly shown as number instead of it's name)? It's more like a 
finger exercise than a real problem... :-)
