Good morning, I'm having a some permissions trouble with suexec running on Sarge. I have a virtualhost for a user called Bob which specifies User Bob and Group Bob in the /etc/apache/conf.d/bob.conf file.
If I switch user to bob, and run ls -la on /, /var, /var/www, /var/www/bob I can see all of the files, so why is apache running as this user not able to?
Hiya, You'll probably find that all your Apache processes are running as www-data based on the User directive in your main httpd.conf -- and they can't read bob's files. Only CGI scripts will be affected by the "User" directive in a VirtualHost. From: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/core.html#user "Special note: Use of this directive in <VirtualHost> requires a properly configured suEXEC wrapper. When used inside a <VirtualHost> in this manner, only the user that CGIs are run as is affected. Non-CGI requests are still processed with the user specified in the main User directive." Regards, Blair.
