Is there anyone on this forum who has FrontPage working successfully with SuExec? If so, can you tell me how you fixed the problem of users not being able to publish their websites?

If not, can someone give me a checkoff list for uninstalling SuExec?

Thanks

This was a fresh install on a brand new server, running Redhat 7.2. Yes, I ran /scripts/initfpsuexec and the problem still occurs. The user is prompted repeatedly for a password when trying to publish.

Also, please verify the md5sum on initfpsuexec

[~]# md5sum /scripts/initfpsuexec
c682d5e50ed175f282a55a2dcc971f7e /scripts/initfpsuexec

is should also be ok as well..

you can always resync scripts with

rsync -av rsync://rsync.cpanel.net/scripts /scripts

no suexec_log has been created, but I see these errors in the error log:

Warning: User directive in <VirtualHost> requires SUEXEC wrapper.
Warning: Group directive in <VirtualHost> requires SUEXEC wrapper.

The suexec binary is in /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec but apparently is not starting when Apache is restarted?

711 isn\'t going to cut it for suexec. You need to make it 4755

chmod 4755 /usr/local/apache/bin/suexec


..retstart apache...

chmod 4755

That worked -- FP published like a charm. The server was delivered at the end of December with CPanel/Suexec preinstalled. You should probably notify distributors to make sure the permissions on the suexec binary are correct. Thanks for your help.
