Description HSCG NOC 2005-06-28 08:32:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.7.8-

Description of problem:
The patch 'httpd-2.0.46-rediruser.patch' is missing a ',' after the REDIRECT_REMOTE_USER string, which the patch adds to suexec.c, resulting in a new entry in the save_enf_lst, "REDIRECT_REMOTE_USER=REDIRECT_STATUS=". This breaks our setup, using php as cgi, which relies on the REDIRECT_STATUS variable to be correctly setup.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install httpd 2.0.46-46
2. configure apache to start php as cgi
3. php bails out because it can't find the redirect_status variable.

It can easily be shown using 'strings' on /usr/sbin/suexec. The correct version shows seperate entries for REDIRECT_REMOTE_USER and REDIRECT_STATUS. The faulty version of suexec will show a large 'REDIRECT_REMOTE_USER=REDIRECT_STATUS=' string.

Actual Results:  php won't run as cgi, because of the missing REDIRECT_STATUS variable

Expected Results:  REDIRECT_STATUS should be included in the environment

Additional info:

This should be fixed soon, as it probably breaks a lot of setups, by using a flawed patch.
