I have a cgi script that opens a file (using python).
The cgi script runs fine but when I try to open this file, I get a permission error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/asdf/pkgs/linux/intel/apache/2.2.14.rhas5.x86_64/htdocs/Sites/cgi-bin/avgsBarGraphView.py", line 304, in <module> main() File "/asdf/pkgs/linux/intel/apache/2.2.14.rhas5.x86_64/htdocs/Sites/cgi-bin/avgsBarGraphView.py", line 61, in main f=open('/asdf/home/asdf/PYTHON/PERFRPTCRONJOB/TEST_FILES/testfile','r') PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/asdf/home/asdf/PYTHON/PERFRPTCRONJOB/TEST_FILES/testfile'
I've added the folder containing
/asdf/home/asdf/PYTHON/PERFRPTCRONJOB/TEST_FILES/testfile to my httpd.conf.
<Directory "/asdf/home/asdf/PYTHON/PERFRPTCRONJOB/TEST_FILES/"> AllowOverride None Options None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
I've also changed the permissions of the folder TEST_FILES to 777 and the permissions of testfile to 777. I can open the file via python from the command line but when I try to open this file by running a cgi-script, it fails.
