    FrontPage extensions + suexec

    Hello Everyone,

    Seems like I ran into a problem trying to configure both Frontpage and suexec... Basically, the frontpage extensions are not able to run because they are owned by the wrong user and have the wrong permission levels.

    If I change the ownership or permission, then Frontpage gives a security error.

    any ideas? i'm kinda lost on this one

    Thanks

    Someone at http://apachetoolbox.sourceforge.net/board/ once had that error and fixed it

    When you compile Apache, when the suEXEC binary (and fpEXEC binary if your particular implementation uses it) is locked down to a specific username. This is done for security reasons. If you change this username, you have to recompile Apache.

    Do not use the frontpage apache module that comes with the frontpage extension. Instead use one from http://people.freebsd.org/~mbr/distfiles/.
