Perl does not work because suexec denies execution

Short solution.

If you have for example:

[root@server]# suexec -V
-D AP_DOC_ROOT=”/var/www” <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< correct place for suexec scripts -D AP_GID_MIN=100 -D AP_HTTPD_USER="apache" -D AP_LOG_EXEC="/var/log/httpd/suexec.log" -D AP_SAFE_PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin" -D AP_UID_MIN=500 -D AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX="public_html" [root@server]# then: 1.) create a directory /var/www/cgi-bin (owner root / chmod 0701) 2.) create a directory /var/www/cgi-bin/YOUR_CUSTOMER (owner YOUR_CUSTOMER / chmod 0701) 3.) add symlink $HOME_of_virtualhost/cgi-bin which points to /var/www/cgi-bin/YOUR_CUSTOMER 4.) add path option which allows executing scripts (perl etc etc) in $HOME_of_virtualhost/cgi-bin CGI will work.

CGI – web status of system’s command.
