Subject Re: [users@httpd] cgi permission denied for C++ but not for perl
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 14:05:31 GMT
Make sure that selinux isn't causing the problem.

Either set it to 'disabled' or 'permissive' in /etc/selinux/config  
(you will need to reboot).

You should be able to see logs about selinux in /var/log/messages.

Good luck,
  -Andrew
