    Last upcp messed up /var/cpanel/Counters/*.dat

    Anyone else experienced this?

    The bad thing though is that the path the the *.dat files was displayed instead on the number with a \"cannot write to\" message....

    user:group for these files bing both nobody, this could lure someone to play a nasty trick to other customers....

    Just a thought, :D

    Hmmm,

    chmod 666 *.dat fixed the problem...


    But, I had Apache rebuilt by my provider yesterday, do you think this is related?

    suexec has now stopped running
    -------------

    [2002-02-01 06:35:10]: info: (target/actual) uid: (spiderc/spiderc) gid: (spiderc/spiderc) cmd: scgiwrap
    [2002-02-01 06:35:10]: error: file is either setuid or setgid: (/usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/scgiwrap)

    any ideas?

    THanks,
    Hedgy

    Actually you can\'t use scgi-bin with suexec as your uid is already set to the user ....
