Subject [users@httpd] script executes- as wrong user
Date Sat, 30 Nov 2002 06:29:33 GMT
ipt in python to delete a mailing list. It is set with
the 4000 bit to execute as the owner, NOT as nobody, so it can process the
aliases file. When it goes to create a temp aliases file, it kicks out, with a
error that it is denighed permission to do so.

The script is owned by root. STOP SCREAMING. The thing is PARANOID and screens
all data very carefully. PYTHON is owned by root. apache runs as nobody:wheel.

Nonetheless, the script is executing as nobody according to the 'id' command I
built into it, and OF COURSE this is boing to bounce when it tries to create a
file in /etc/mail! Any ideas, things to check, good liquor to drink while
considering this quandry?
