Subject [users@httpd] CGI scripts generating 503 error
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2019 14:52:17 GMT
So I am really having a difficult time figuring out this problem.  Tried 
to do some searching of the archives here, didn't come up with anything.

Recently had a server die, but was in the process of replacing it at my 
leisure. Had to do it ASAP instead, didn't have a chance to test everything.

Anyway, the new box is Running Fedora 29.  Here's the output of httpd -V 
on the machine:

Server version: Apache/2.4.39 (Fedora)
Server built:   Apr  2 2019 15:45:49
Server's Module Magic Number: 20120211:84
Server loaded:  APR 1.6.5, APR-UTIL 1.6.1
Compiled using: APR 1.6.5, APR-UTIL 1.6.1
Architecture:   64-bit
Server MPM:     event
   threaded:     yes (fixed thread count)
     forked:     yes (variable process count)
Server compiled with....
  -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
  -D HTTPD_ROOT="/etc/httpd"
  -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/sbin/suexec"
  -D DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD="logs/apache_runtime_status"
  -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
  -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="conf/mime.types"
  -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

The config file has the lines:

LoadModule cgi_module modules/


ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/local/mailman/teamnet/cgi-bin/"

<Directory "/local/mailman/teamnet/cgi-bin/">
           AuthType None
           Require all granted
           Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI

If you go to most pages work as expected, even the 
ones that are years out of date.  I'm such a great procrastinator!  I 
was also a pretty good sys admin at the U of U Computer Science 
department for about a quarter of a century.  But now I feel like a 
total novice.  If you go to you 
get the 503 Service Unavailable error.  And I can NOT figure out why.  
This issue was hashed out on the Mailman user's list, no resolution, a 
dead end. Perhaps someone on this list can get me going down a different 
rabbit hole for a few hours.

The wonders of modern technology.
