Subject [users@httpd] Apache and Samba problem
Date Tue, 15 Oct 2002 19:06:20 GMT

can anybody help me? I didn't find any hint in the web, what's wrong with my
network or my web server configuration.

I have got a tiny network with an linux fileshare and a W2k client. I
mounted (via samba) my linux home share to my Windows pc as drive "M:". Now
I installed Apache 2.0.43 on my Windows PC and want to call a cgi-script
located on this M:-drive - unfortunatly without success.

The Apache Web Server is able to
- execute the cgi-scripts if they are lying in an cgi-dir on my local
- get html-files lying in appropriate dirs located on the M:-drive

When calling an cgi-script located on this M:-dir I get an error message:

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable
to complete your request.

I checked the permissions of the cgi-scripts and they seem to be o.k.
(readable and executable by all)

Perhaps it is a samba problem, but I can't imagine which...

Here are the respective sections in my httpd.conf:

Alias /pl4pd "M:/projekte/bluecarat/pl4pd/public_html"
<Directory "M:/projekte/bluecarat/pl4pd/public_html">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AddOutputFilter Includes html
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Programme/Apache/Apache2/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "C:/Programme/Apache/Apache2/cgi-bin">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

ScriptAlias /pl4pdcgi/ "M:/projekte/bluecarat/pl4pd/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "M:/projekte/bluecarat/pl4pd/cgi-bin/">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

And here is the corresponding error log entry:

[Tue Oct 15 20:28:35 2002] [error] [client] (720005)Zugriff
verweigert  : Failed to read cgi file
M:/projekte/bluecarat/pl4pd/cgi-bin/ for testing
[Tue Oct 15 20:28:35 2002] [error] [client] (720005)Zugriff
verweigert  : don't know how to spawn child process:

Any ideas what's wrong??

Thanks in advance & best regards,
