Comment 1 Joe Orton 2005-08-26 04:00:38 EDT
The error message means simply that a CGI script has failed to produce any
output within the configured timeout.  The timeout is controlled by the
"Timeout" setting -- 120 seconds by default.   Are you sure that the bugzilla
set up is correct?

The SELinux settings can often affect CGI script behaviour on RHEL4; it's useful
to check for any relevant avc denial messages in dmesg.
Comment 2 chris suttles 2005-08-26 09:07:06 EDT
Thanks for your suggestions.  :)

SELinux is set to permissive, and the timeout is set to 600. I am working with 
another individual on this, and although I did not set up Bugzilla, I have 
confidence that it was set up correctly. 

We have also tried updating httpd and dependencies to the newer packages still 
in beta for U2, but no luck. We have rolled back to the U1 release of said 
packages at this point, but the problem persists. 
Comment 3 chris suttles 2005-08-26 12:34:19 EDT
After looking more closely at the issue, it turns oout it was timing out due to 
a misconfiguration of postfix. The issue is now resolved. thanks again.
