Subject suExec patch for mod_ssl environment variables
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2001 18:19:43 GMT

I am trying to use suExec for running CGI programs on a server that
is secured using mod_ssl.  The problem that I am running into is that
suExec strips out all of the SSL related environment variables when it
cleans the environment space of the child process.  Since it strips out
the variables, I lose the ability to detect whether my CGI programs are
running through SSL.

I have attached a patch to suexec.c that adds the HTTPS variable to the 
"safe_env_lst" variable and adds a check in clean_env() to look for and 
retain all the variables that start with "SSL_".
