Subject [users@httpd] Problems w/ suExec
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2003 21:13:17 GMT
Hello all.  I'm attempting to configure the web application PISE for use
on our Linux cluster.  For those of you not familiar w/ the program, it
builds web interfaces to common bioinformatics applications through XML.
These web UI's are implemented in perl CGI.
I have built C wrappers for these applications so that I can setuid to
the user who submitted the job for accounting purposes.  I'm
continuously getting the following error message to STDERR:
Insecure $ENV{PATH} while running setuid at
/home/web/html/Pise/tmp/revseq/A26756106797792/script line 121.
My first question would be:  Is this an error message related to suExec?
My second question: If so, what should I be looking at to address this
