Litespeed Suexec

Jun 17, 2009

I installed lsws without apache conf file(httpd.conf). Then I created a new virtual host in "suEXEC" Template. I added a new user via SSH and made home dir for him and chowned his home dir + all his files to hisusername:hisusername. His home dir(/home/user/) is chmoded to 755 and his /public_html to 711. It worked fine but after that I installed phpbb3 forum and when I tried to chmod config.php to 600 I got an error on the forum:

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/username/public_html/common.php on line 127

When I was using lsws with apache conf file and I had configured suEXEC + suPHP for apache I was able to chmod config file to 600 and it worked fine. I have no idea what could be the problem now.

It works fine when I chmod config.php to 755 but for security reasons I would need a way to configure it to 600.

About Suexec

Mar 23, 2008

what fellow users here set --with-suexec-docroot in Apache
installations when cgi-bin folder is outside the public_html folder.

Looks like setting it to /home is the only way.

Setting Up Php/SuExec

Jan 2, 2007

(what I did find was for old apache, not 2.2)

I have Fedora Core 5 wih Apache 2.2.2 and VirtualHosts setup, currently running mod_php and mod_suexec. I would like to switch to use php with suexec because I need to edit files with php that "nobody" doesn't have access to (777 not an option).

Right now mod_suexec works great with Perl, but not PHP. So I ask, how can I get them to play nice?

I've been attempting to develope a server running apache 2+, php 5, and I was running into issues installing php as cgi.... All my scripts require The shebang:
#!/usr/bin/php at the top to execute properly. Anyone know a good site/how to that explains how to do this?

has anyone else here run suexec with apache? If so, could you tell me what you compiled it with? Just curious, as I think i'm doing everything right, yet I still fail

Apache 2.2 + Suexec + Mod_fastcgi

Jan 3, 2007

First uninstall your existing PHP.

Install httpd-devel

Second compile a new PHP with support of cgi/fcgi:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php-fcgi --enable-fastcgi --enable-memory-limit --with-mysql=shared,/usr --enable-discard-path --enable-force-cgi-redirect --with-imap=shared,/usr --with-gd=shared,/usr --with-libxml=shared,/usr --with-mbstring=shared --with-freetype-dir=/usr --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-png-dir=/usr --with-zlib-dir=/usr --with-kerberos --with-imap-ssl


make install
To solve the errors during configure problems take a look at this:

Next you'll need to download/install fcgid:

tar xfvz fcgi-2.4.1-SNAP-0311112127.tar.gz
cd fcgi-2.4.1-SNAP-0311112127
make install
Next you'll need to compile/install mod_fastcgi for Apache 2.2.2:

wget [url]
tar xfvz mod_fastcgi-SNAP-0404142202.tar.gz
cd fcgi-2.4.1-SNAP-0311112127
Now we need to apply a patch so mod_fastcgi compiles with Apache 2.2. Put the following into a file:

PAM Authentication Failure With FTP And Apache Suexec

Jun 18, 2007

i am trying to setup a VPS with:

Apache Suexec, so that each VHosts runs under there own username
FTP for each of the vhosts.

I have made a username aplushost and FTP works fine when i login, however when i try and get Suexec to work it shows a 403 permision dined, even know the whole directroy path is with correct permsions.


However if i chown the directroy "aplushost" to apaches username , currently "nobody" i have tried with "apache" and many others the page is displayed correctly.

The weird thing is that the www directroy can still be set to the aplushost username and files work inside.

However due to changing the privalages of the folder aplushost ftp now fails to login due to the folder not being owned by the ftp user "aplushost".

So im stuck between only having one item working at a time.

i have put some content of my config files.

----------httpd.conf vhosts------------------
DocumentRoot "/home/aplushost/www"
SuexecUserGroup aplushost aplushost
<Directory "/home/aplushost/www">
allow from all
Options +Indexes

---------------passwd file----------------

(Have tried with many different shells, no difference, also tried with home directroy as just /home/aplushost)

Blank Php Pages- Mod_cgi- Suexec? W00t

Jul 25, 2007

I am having trouble with blank pages on some web applications; ccHost and phpBB3.

I can get these to run on a seperate VPS, that isn't as securely locked down and the dedi --- but it is of course the dedi I want to run these apps from.

I simply get blank pages when trying to access ccHost. As if PHP isn't parsing it. But in a phpBB3 installation I'm getting random blanks, some of which I can refresh out of ... What's even weirder: sometimes when I try to viewtopic - or call some function ... I get the download dialogue!? (Do you want to open or download index.php for instance).

I've been trying loads of stuff. It seems that mod_security isn't running anymore, so that isn't the issue. Could mod_cgi or mod_suexec perhaps be the cheeky offenders? I have absolutely no idea.

Just hoping someone can help me where to look... Or how I can debug this issue. I'm at a loss in how to continue. Any help will be very appreciated.

Some details... The server is hardened and secured, but...
I'm running other CMS installs on the server, and they are working fine. Even a phpBB2 install is running smooth. Besides this I'm using LAMP setup on CentOS and webmin is running.

Disable/Bypass Suexec Per Vhost Domain

Oct 12, 2007

I am running on;

Plesk versionpsa v8.0.1_build80060613.20 os_CentOS 4.2
Operating systemLinux 2.6.9-023stab033.6-smp
License key numberPLSK.00170782.0006

I need to be able to access cgi between vhost domains. In particular one frequently updated file located 'centrally' in the cgi-bin of one of the vhost domain.

I would like to be able to have other vhost domains be able to access this file but suexec won't let that happen. I have searched around and tried to following;

Created vhost.conf file in the conf directory of one of the domains.

The vhost.conf file contained (with no #):

# <IfModule mod_suexec.c>
# SuexecUserGroup userid psacln
# </IfModule>

I ran;

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=<domain name>

Then reboot.

The result was all the vhosts stopped working. I reset the websvrmng, things returned to normal.

Then I tried updating the httpd.include file adding (with no #);

# <IfModule mod_suexec.c>
# SuexecUserGroup userid psacln
# </IfModule>

Then reboot.

The result was the same, all vhosts stopped working.

Does anyone have an idea how I can achieve this? I know I can disable suexec all together but that wreaked a little havoc with the cgi app when I tried that.

Using Vhost.conf To Override Suexec Directive In Httpd.include

Oct 20, 2009

I need to change the server configuration on Plesk such that the SuexecUserGroup directive is removed, so the user's cgi scripts run as the apache user (www-data), rather than as the user specified in that directive (the domain user), as on an unshared (non-VPS) server. I don't care about security from other domains because only one domain runs on it anyway, so making the user domain-specific is irrelevant from a security point of view and stops some of the user's code working.

This directive is found in
and is:
SuexecUserGroup user psacln
(this line appears twice, for ports 443 and 80)

I understand that this file can't be modified, as it may be overwritten by Plesk. Therefore additional directives must go in the vhost.conf file.

Will the following vhost.conf file do the trick and override the directives in httpd.include?

<VirtualHost domainIP:443>
SuexecUserGroup www-data www-data
<VirtualHost domainIP:80>
SuexecUserGroup www-data www-data

Apache :: Warning - SuexecUserGroup Directive Requires SUEXEC Wrapper

Nov 27, 2013

Why this error might have started to appear? I am fairly new to apache and was trying to harden it up.

I am use CentOS:

Server version: Apache/2.2.25 (Unix)
Server built: Oct 7 2013 17:21:18
Cpanel::Easy::Apache v3.22.14 rev9999

I was trying to add a group to control access to specific groups to enforce some security:

chown -R root:root /usr/local/apache/bin
chmod -R 770 /usr/local/apache/bin

chown -R root:root /usr/local/apache/conf
chmod -R 770 /usr/local/apache/conf

groupadd apacheadmin

groupadd apache
useradd -d /usr/local/apache/htdocs -g apache -s /bin/false apache

I think this is a permission issue.

Mar 31, 2009

In a 2 X Quad Xeon server with 16GB RAM and 2 X 500GB on DirectAdmin.

IOwait is less than 10% most of the times.

So litespeed told me to go with a 2 CPU core license.

1. So since i going with 2 CPU core license. It will only make 2 cores user litespeed for PHP out of 8 cores? what other cores gonna do? only static content? Or other cores gonna use Apache for php? can you plz explain.

2. Do we have to configure cache like mod_cache, mod_disk_cache, and mod_mem_cache etc with litespeed too? Or it has its own methods of caching?

3. Should use their PHP LiteSpeed SAPI over normal PHP?
Is there any compatibility problems with scripts like Vbulletin, jamroom?

LiteSpeed Vs Apache

Jul 17, 2009

Anyone happen to know the difference between the two and whether or not I'll notice the difference between them?

For example, many, many, many, many moons ago, in a far away land, there used to be a difference between Windows and Linux for perl scripts. In fact, if you couldn't re-write half the script, some of them just didn't work right on a windows host.

Are there any differences like that between lightspeed and apache, or is it all pretty much the same and doesn't really matter?

However, when you access the site via HTTPS (SSL), I recieve ioncube is not loaded. Comparing the phpinfo, it appears that the https is loading the old configuration of phpinfo, what's worse, is that it's loading PHP 4. Both however, load the same PHP configuration file.
