Description sgiesecke 2000-01-14 13:58:07 UTC
After upgrading to the recently provided rpm of apache-1.3.9-8 I noticed
that the suEXEC mechanism was no longer working (and apache no longer
mentioned suEXEC on startup).

The problem is that /usr/sbin/suexec ought to be set suid but wasn't. By
executing
chmod 711 /usr/sbin/suexec
the problem was resolved.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-01-14 19:16:59 UTC
the suid bit was removed from suexec to provide a safer default security set-up.
