Package: thttpd
Severity: important

In dual boot system, like Win/Linux, there is data in VFAT (fat32)
partitions. If the "dir" is pointed to mounted vfat partition's
directory, the program is unable to serve files.

	$ mount -t vfat /dev/hdf6 /mnt/local/hd/f6

And in configuration file /etc/thttpd.conf:



	$ lynx http://localhost:81/
	Alert!: HTTP/1.0 500 Internal Error

   500 Internal Error

   There was an unusual problem serving the requested URL '/'.

    thttpd/2.23beta1 26may2002

The /var/log/thttpd.log does not give further information: - - [08/Sep/2004:09:57:33 +0300] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 500 0 "" "Lynx/2.8.5rel.1 libwww-FM/2.14 SSL-MM/1.4.1 GNUTLS/0.8.12"

I reproduced your problem (on a newer version): the reason for this
error was that thttpd expects ordinary files to be non executable (see
manpage!). When mounting FAT/VFAT files get the executable permission
by default. With the right mount options everything works as expected:

% mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/windows -o ro,fmask=7333

% thttpd -p 8888 -d /mnt/windows -D -l /dev/stdout

other shell:

% wget -O /dev/null http://localhost:8888/windows/system32/cmd.exe
