Hi All,

When loading a temporary URL I get the error below. This is a brand new account added through WHM and new install of wordpress. I tried to use the temporary url but when I do I get an error as per below.

[Thu Jul 18 13:47:12 2013] [warn] [client #] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
[Thu Jul 18 13:47:12 2013] [error] [client #] Premature end of script headers: index.php
[Thu Jul 18 13:47:13 2013] [error] [client #] File does not exist: /home/user/public_html/sys_cpanel, referer: http://servername/~riact/

However when I disable SuExec all seems to work perfectly. How can it have permission issues if it's a brand new site?

Any ideas?

Hello :)

UserDir requests will not function correctly when using Mod_FCGI. This is documented at:

FCGI Considerations

Disabling SuExec will allow the URL to load, but it reduces the overall security of FCGI.

Thank you.

Hi

Is there any possibility to get mod_userdir working with SuExec enabled?

The goal is to access the website before connecting the domain.

Thanks

The easier approach would be to modify the hosts file on your home computer so it directs the domain name to the new IP address. This will allow you to browse the domain name directly in your browser before updating the name servers.

Thank you.
