Using Apache with Suexec on Linux - page 8
Executing CGI Scripts as Other Users
If you need to build Apache from source in order to add or change
% cd ./apache-1.3 % env CC=gcc CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall" \ > ./configure --enable-shared=max --enable-module=most \ > --with-layout=Apache --prefix=/usr/local/web/apache \ > --with-port=80 \ > --enable-suexec \ > --suexec-caller=nobody \ > --suexec-docroot=/usr/local/web \ > --suexec-umask=022 Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.12-dev + using installation path layout: Apache (config.layout) + Warning: You have enabled the suEXEC feature. Be aware that you need + root privileges to complete the final installation step. Creating Makefile Creating Configuration.apaci in src [more configuration output] % make [lots of compilation output] % make install [lots more output describing file placement] % /usr/local/web/apache/bin/apachectl start
If you didn't encounter any errors, you should now have a
working Apache installation in the location that matches
assumption #2 described earlier.
It's been built to include
% /usr/local/web/apache/bin/httpd -l Compiled-in modules: http_core.c mod_so.c suexec: enabled; valid wrapper /usr/local/web/apache/bin/suexec
It's far beyond the scope of this article to give any more information about building Apache. If you'd like to see an article in this column about the details of building Apache, let me know.
