Description Joerg Dorchain 2000-05-15 06:28:35 EDT
The /usr/sbin/suexec program is installed by the 1.3.12-2 apache-rpm with
modes set to 711. In this case (viewable with httpd -l) suexec isn't used
(which would be senseless).
If you change permissions by hand to 4711, it works.
Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2000-05-15 18:40:59 EDT
This is the default suExec installation behaviour.  If you don't know what
you're doing, you are better off leaving suExec disabled.  This way it can be
installed safely, but enabled only with administrator's intervention.

I don't know if Redhat would want to enable it by default though.
Comment 2 Joerg Dorchain 2000-05-16 04:28:59 EDT
In this case mention the intention with it somewhere noticeably, please (e.g. a
short line in the rpm description tag)
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-10 16:12:49 EDT
The manual (http://localhost/manual/suexec.html) describes SuExec
operation better than a blurb in the package description ever could
without becoming atypically long.
Comment 4 Joerg Dorchain 2000-07-11 04:15:28 EDT
I wanted to propose a pointer to the location of the manual section, like "For
suxec to work see ...."
