Apache w/ Potato, strange .CGI functionality.
I'm not exactly sure if this is a Debian + Apache problem, or just an
Apache problem, so if you can point me in the right direction (another
list, perhaps?) I'd be most appreciative.
I installed the apache-perl package on my fileserver, and I've configured
it for multiple NameVirtualHosts. In a couple of cases, these separate
virtual hosts will have separate user directories, demo-www and home-www
come to mind, for demo.domain.com/~user and home.domain.com/~user respecitvely.
Everything was working right (or so I thought) until I tried to put CGI's
in the ~user directories. I get the frustratingly annoying error:
[error] (2)No such file or directory: exec of
I originally thought it was a bad .cgi script, so I copied the one that
works (in the main cgi-bin directory) into my home-www directory, and tried
again. Same thing.
I tried command line, but it works just fine.
I had a problem with suEXEC, so I've taken it out for now (that was already
a bug submitted to the Debian folks, hardcoded public_html directories)
I tried setting up the mod_perl stuff, but when I do that, the browser
tries to download the output of the CGI script, even though the first thing
that is sent is "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"
I've been banging my head against the wall for 2 hours on this problem now.
Does anyone have any pointers for me?
I've seen this work with Apache on other servers, but they may have been
separately compiled. I didn't get the apache-dev kit, should I do that and
Thanks very much!
