I am running an Apache server with Suexec. However, I get an internal server error if I try to execute a CGI script that is group-writeable (if I chmod g-w , the script runs fine)

However, I want the file to be group-writeable. SuPHP has a config option that allows me to do this, but I can't find the analogous option for Suexec. How can I run CGI scripts that are g+w?


This is an explicit check which suEXEC does, and can only be removed by modifying the source code (which is not recommended).

  • I ran into the same problem. Too bad suEXEC cannot run cgi files with any permission other than 755 (assuming this is the case). – Leo Galleguillos Jun 5 '16 at 7:36
