Subject [users@httpd] Meaning of "exec failed. errno=2."
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 16:04:53 GMT
Hi All,

Lately I've been getting the error "exec failed. errno=2." in my general error 
log.  I've searched for information but have only found some information that 
I'm not sure is correct or relevant.  The message comes maybe becuause 
someone is trying to execute a cgi using something like 
<!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/example.cgi" --> or similar, but I cant find anything 
concrete and so far have found no pages where something like this exists.  
The log entry also fails to give any kind of useful information as to where 
it happened or what caused it, so I'm kind of at a loss to find out what is 
really happening.  The only thing that I found in the source was in the file 
suexec.c on line 617 which logs an error but itself seems to not know what 
the error was.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can track the source of this 
problem down?

greetings from Austria
