Subject [users@httpd] apache2 permissions problem on SELS10SP1
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2008 11:40:17 GMT
I'm hoping someone here can give me a hand. We have an apache2 server
that has several virtual servers. Somehow they got screwed up, still not
sure how. To make a long story short, I ended up removing them all and
setting them back up again using yast2/HTTP Server tool. 

All the sites are up and answering correctly, but all of our cgi scripts
are failing with 403 errors. In the error log I get this:
[Thu Aug 07 20:47:07 2008] [error] [client ipaddress] client denied by
server configuration: /srv/www/cgi-bin/, referer:

The config for this virtual host is:
<VirtualHost ´╗┐>
 DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs/ref/
 ServerName ´╗┐
 <Directory /srv/www/htdocs/ref/>
  AllowOverride None
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
 ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/srv/www/cgi-bin/"
 ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/
 CustomLog /var/log/apache2/ common

The files are in the cgi-bin directory, and I'm told they were working
fine before this problem started. 

wwwrun is the user owner, and root is the grp owner. I even have the
files temporarily set to 777.

Anyone have any suggestions?
