Subject [users@httpd] suExec problem
Date Fri, 12 May 2006 12:41:52 GMT


I have a SuSe 9.3 server, with apache version 2.0.53 and suexec 
configured. It was working for months. One day, it stopped working for 
ALL virtual hosts. I might have misconfigured something, but I'm not 
sure what is the problem. When I start up apache, I see this in the 

[Fri May 12 11:48:40 2006] [warn] Init: Session Cache is not configured 
[hint: SSLSessionCache]
[Fri May 12 11:48:40 2006] [notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: 
Destroying config 0x80f0c08
Creating new config (0x80f4ea8) for (null)
[Fri May 12 11:48:40 2006] [notice] Apache/2.0.53 (Linux/SUSE) 
configured -- resuming normal operations

So probably the suexec binary is okay. Then I go to one of my virtual 
hosts, and execute phpinfo(). That says I'm using the mod_php version. 
There are no more error messages in apache error log neither in suexec.log.

Here is my suexec config:

dybs1 /home/nagylzs# suexec2 -V
-D AP_DOC_ROOT="/srv/www"
-D AP_HTTPD_USER="wwwrun"
-D AP_LOG_EXEC="/var/log/apache2/suexec.log"
-D AP_SAFE_PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin"
-D AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX="public_html"

Here is a virtual host:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  DocumentRoot /srv/www/vhosts/ddyb04/
  ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/joomla-dynabit-error_log
  CustomLog /var/log/apache2/joomla-dynabit-access_log combined
  UseCanonicalName Off
  ServerSignature On

  ScriptAlias /php/ "/srv/www/vhosts/ddyb04/"
  Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php5"

  DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php

  SuexecUserGroup ddyb04 users

  <Directory "/srv/www/vhosts/ddyb04/">
      Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

  <Directory "/srv/www/vhosts/ddyb04/">
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride FileInfo
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

Do you have any ideas? Why it is not working? Why can't I see the error 
in the logs?
