chmod failure when switching from suPHP to fast-CGI

    suPHP/php-cgi, which I believe are necessary to allow the upload directories to function properly in Joomla, wordpress, and other CMS, is extremely resource heavy - as in 40-60% cpu _per instance_.

    So, I switched one of the biggest offenders to fast-CGI, so that he could test what would be necessary to use that with wordpress-MU.

    I ended up with not two, but eight jobs in the jobqueue, which stayed locked up. Subsequently, I enabled debugging, ran the server.sh process manually, and got this. (running it before debugging wouldn't actually complete)

    Notice the 'cannot access' 'no such file or directory' message. The /var/www/clients/client8/web3 and web4 directories -DO- exist, but apparently the process doesn't have permissions to work on them, or something.

    Here's the ls -la for one of them

    ls -la /var/www/clients/client8/web4/
    total 52
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Aug 15 15:26 .
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Aug 15 15:26 ..
    drwxr-xr-x 2 web4 client8 4096 Aug 15 15:26 cgi-bin
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 web4 client8 37 Aug 15 15:26 log -> /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/<website1>.net
    drwxr-xr-x 2 web4 client8 4096 Aug 15 15:26 ssl
    drwxrwxrwx 2 web4 client8 4096 Aug 15 15:26 tmp
    drwxr-xr-x 24 web4 client8 4096 Aug 16 00:37 web

    Any suggestions?

    The process is running as root user, os it definately has enough permissions. Except if you run the script manually for debugging?

    Which exact ISPConfig version do you use?

    Also post the output of:

    ls -la /var/www/clients/client8/web3

    Running the latest beta version, was running the server.sh script as root for debugging purposes. Actually had to kill three other server.sh scripts that had locked up completely without giving reasons why, so I could run that one.

    Installed on CentOS 5.3 - ISPConfig-3.0.1.4-beta.tar.gz

    Oh - any suggestions on reducing the cpu load when running suPHP?

    [edit]

    Never mind, I found out that you can't use eaccelerator if you're using suPHP.

    Too bad there's not an easy way to use the jailkit and flip all of the various sites to be owned by apache.
