Using cgi-bin directory outside ispconfig installation
As you all know ispconfig uses jalkit in order to chroot web-server as well as mail server erc. That is fine, but: i am experiencing a problem with other application we use cgi-bin directory outside the chrooted system.
In order to pin-point the problem i will give 2 examples (one solved and one did not)
Example 1 mailgraph (This tutorial --> http://howtoforge.net/mail_statistic...ph_pflogsumm):
Mailgraph installation put out cgi-bin files at:/usr/lib/cgi-bin/. If you use the tutorial you will not see any graph because the web-site user is jailed under the web-site directory. In this case i re owned the files at /usr/lib/cgi-bin/ to the web-server user (i.e webX.clentY) and it worked out fine.
Example 2 BackupPC: (this tutorial --> http://howtoforge.net/linux_backuppc) once again cgi-bin files are outside the chrooted web server. I build up the web server user at backuppc installation but it is not working at all.
Another problematic app is nagios who ,once again, put cgi-bin directive out side the chrooted system, and once again (although i owned the cgi-bin directory to web server jailed user) it is not usable.
I will be more the happy if some one has a way howto fix the problem of cgi-bin outside the chrooted web-server user.
B.T.W: in the case of nagios i chaned the apache.conf file that came with the installation so that it will point to the chrooted cgi-bin and made the other needed changes with nagion, never the less it did not worked out nagios did not liked is. I think their should be more system wise solution so that jailed web-site user could read run and activate cgi-bin directories out side jail.
A word about the installation:
O.S: Ubuntu 10.04.1 32 bit web server.Ispconfig3 version 3.0.3
Thank you all,
Hi, same problem here...
I'm using ISPConfig2 and Nagios3...any help?
Thanks in advance
ISPConfig 2 and 2 are completely different software packages. So any solution for ispconfig 2 will not work for ispconfig 3 and vice versa.
Sorry, I didn't notice this was an ISPConfig3 forum (came from search engine...)
I've checked ISPConfig2 forum, and found no solution...
Thank you for a great great site!
I know we are in 2013 but I couldn't find anywhere this info:
Is there a solution so I can have ISPConfig and Nagios on the same server?
""Another problematic app is nagios who ,once again, put cgi-bin directive out side the chrooted system,"
Thank you in advance.
I've manage to use Nagios3 with ISPConfig2...I think that this is not a "clean and beautiful" solution, but maybe you can give it a try (replace webXXXX with your virtual server folder):
copy nagios3 cgi to /var/www/webXXX/cgi-bin/nagios3
in nagios3.conf I have:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/nagios3 /var/www/webXXX/cgi-bin/nagios3
ScriptAlias /nagios3/cgi-bin /var/www/webXXX/cgi-bin/nagios3
Options FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
Allow From All
AuthUserFile /etc/nagios3/<file users>
Hope this can help...
Just a note: ISPConfig 2 and 3 are completely different controlpanels, so a setup for ispconfig 2 will not work for ispconfig 3 as the paths and apache setup is different.
ISPConfig2 is not ISPConfig3...
I'm aware that ispconfig2 and ispconfig3 are diferent (that's why I started to explicity state that my workaround worked for me with ispconfig2...)
I was trying to point a possible path...
Sorry for any inconvenient...
Thanks for posting your configuration and it will be helpful for a user with ispconfig for sure.
The paths for ispconfig 3 are:
Oh my God, it's working... :)
Thank you so much!
