Subject [users@httpd] Problems getting suexec to work
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2002 03:09:59 GMT
I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with suexec.  The first one being that
it is not really logging.  So since it is not logging I can't get
information about my bigger problem.  I set-up a virtual site using the user
and group directive.  Then I made sure that the directory was owned by that
user and group.   So when I try to access the site I get 403 Forbidden.  So
I go to look in the suexec_log file and the file is not there, so I search
my entire drive for it, and its not there.  So what I did was I created the
file in the same place that it was on my other server and made it writeable
by everyone. I rebooted the server and then tried to access my site a few
times and then looked at the log again and it was empty.  So when I woke up
this morning I found this in the log which I have no idea what generated

[2002-09-07 22:44:56]: alert: too few arguments
[2002-09-07 22:58:56]: alert: too few arguments

It still logs nothing about the 403 Forbidden error.  Or why this page isn't
loading.  If I take out the user and group directives from the virtual site
section and then change ownership of the directory to nobody the page works
fine.  However when I try to make the site use suexec it just keeps giving
me 403 Forbidden.  I have tried recompiling apache, tried installing from an
RPM and nothing is working.  Here is information about my set-up.

Redhat 7.2
Apache 1.3.26

VirtualHost section from httpd.conf

<VirtualHost IP.ADDRESS:80>
       DocumentRoot /home/user/public_html
       User user
       Group user
       CustomLog /var/log/domainlogs/ combined
       ErrorLog /var/log/domainlogs/
       ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/user/public_html/cgi-bin/


You don't have permission to access / on this server.


Apache/1.3.26 Server at Port 80

Any help anyone could offer would be appreciated.
