    Error with suexec enabled

    Hello all,

    In ISPConfig I have suexec enabled for my server and everything is working perfect.
    However, I have two statistic - pages in /usr/share/* and they give with suexec enabled "error 500". With suexec disabled there are no errors.

    The first page is located in /usr/share/mailgraph and is called in a browser with
    For this I use the attached mailgraph.conf wich is located in /etc/htpd/conf.d

    The second page is located in /usr/share/awstats/* and is called in a browser with
    Awstats adjusted the httpd.conf file during config ( see attached httpd.conf file )

    Is there a way that suexec makes an exception for those two pages (directories) ? I prefer suexec enabled for my server.
    Or do I have to change ownership to apache:apache ?

    Help would be appreciated ....

    The problem is that mailgrpah is outside the document root.

    /usr/sbin/suexec -V
    and you should see that suExec's docroot is /var/www:

    [root@server1 ~]# /usr/sbin/suexec -V
     -D AP_DOC_ROOT="/var/www"
     -D AP_GID_MIN=100
     -D AP_HTTPD_USER="apache"
     -D AP_LOG_EXEC="/var/log/httpd/suexec.log"
     -D AP_SAFE_PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin"
     -D AP_UID_MIN=500
     -D AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX="public_html"
    [root@server1 ~]#

    Hello Falko,
    /usr/sbin/suexec -V
    gives excactly what you said, so I moved mailgraph.cgi and mailgraph.css to /var/www
    Also I changed /etc/httpd/conf.d/mailgraph.conf and restarted httpd.
    Still I get errors; error 500 or error 403.

    The error change when I change owner/group properties and when I change file permissions

    How important is it to have suexec enabled for my websites ?

    I think you must move the scripts inside your web site because otherwise they are outside of your vhost user's home directory.
