Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI problem with mod_userdir
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2003 16:35:50 GMT

I can't believe it was something so incredibly simple (I knew it had to 
be something stupid). So, if you don't mind my asking, what is the 
purpose of suexec if Apache doesn't need it? I'm guessing it must have 
some good use and perhaps I just don't have it configured properly.
