FastCGI and suExec problems (Intern)

Check suexec.log.

  1. Make sure you have “SuexecUserGroup rtuser rtgroup” (as mentioned in an other post).
    (or whatever you set rt to run as during configure) in httpd.conf.
  2. The fastcgi-server executable can’t be setgid:

    chmod a-s /path_to_rt/bin/*

  3. The rtuser needs to be owner of the directory and files where fastcgi server is located:

    chown -Rh rtuser:rtgroup /path_to_rt/bin

  4. RT needs to be in Apache docroot, I put it in /var/www/rt (using Apache from Fedora distro).

My httpd.conf:
SuexecUserGroup rt rt
FastCgiWrapper /usr/sbin/suexec
FastCgiIpcDir /var/log/fastcgi
FastCgiServer /var/www/rt/bin/mason_handler.fcgi -processes 10 -idle-timeout 300 -user rt -group rt

I switched to suexec as well after having to restart RT every day due to “Insecure dependency” errors.
I got these errors in the RT log:
[Wed May 5 13:50:06 2004] [crit]: Transaction not committed. Usually indicates a software fault. Data loss may have occurred (/usr/local/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi:62)
Once the “Insecure dependency” occured, that fascgi-server probably was “unstable”, and needed restart.
Haven’t had any “insecure dependency” since I switched to suexec, and no restarts other than after RT upgrade.

I’m running RT 3.0.11 on a Solaris 9 server with Apache 2.0.49, Perl
5.8.3 and FastCGI. My users seem to be getting the:

error: Insecure dependency in eval while running with -T switch at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.3/Locale/Maketext/ line 247.

error constantly at the moment so I have tried to get the suExec wrapper
working with the mason_handler on the httpd.conf file:

FastCgiIpcDir /tmp/fastcgi
FastCgiWrapper /usr/local/apache2/bin/suexec
FastCgiServer /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi -idle-timeout 300
-processes 6

But I now get the following error when I restart Apache:
<<<< CUT >>>>
[Fri May 28 10:42:52 2004] [warn] FastCGI: server
“/opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi” (uid 102, gid 60001) started (pid
[Fri May 28 10:42:52 2004] [warn] FastCGI: server
“/opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi” (pid 15053) terminated by calling exit
with status ‘103’
<<<< CUT >>>>

Does anyone have any ideas on what I’m missing from my config?
