Subject RE: [users@httpd] How to populate MSAccess Database while Apache HTTPD Queries it?
Date Sat, 15 Apr 2006 18:02:41 GMT
Yikes! I'm running as the SYSTEM account according to a little program I
wrote that prints out
System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name using the cli.
This looks like a security threat. Can I change this so the web server is
running in a less privledged account?

Gary,

 

Why cannot I not just run the cygwin cron jobs under the same account as
Apache httpd is using? That ought to fix the problem. Can someone tell me
where in the httpd.conf file I specify the account that Apache httpd uses? I
thought I saw it in there once.

 

If it is not specified there, what is the account that the web server is
running under?

 

Sieg

Subject: Populating Microsoft MDB file and simultaneously querying it

 

I have some cygwin cron jobs populating a Microsoft Access database while
users are trying to simultaneouly query the database via C#/httpd. 

 

I think my problem is that the cygwin cron jobs are running in the
Administrator account and they create a .mdl file (the lock) under the
administrator account and then, while httpd can open the .mdb file (because
I put an access control list on it), httpd cannot open the mdl file (because
the cron job just created it with the Administrator account). 

 

What account should my cron jobs be running in to be compatible with with
httpd? I think they could all access the database fine if they were all
running in the same account?

 

Thanks,

Siegfried

 

I think your stuffed. You could get the script to make a copy of the
database and put all the new record into that one. Then copy the file over
replacing the old one. You may have you restart Apache with graceful after
this, if it changes anything. Adding records should be ok.
