CGI Error: The server encountered an internal error or misco


#1

I get the above error on the web front end, or a blank page, and the apache logs show the below:

(13)Permission denied: exec of ‘/usr/local/nagios/sbin/status.cgi’ failed, referer: alonl01/nagios/side.html

I’ve followed meulie.net/portal_plugins/fo … c.php?1997 and get

[root@alonl01 sbin]# ldd trends.cgi

So there is nothing missing there, and the cgi files in the sbin directory are chown to apache.nagios and rights for all files as below. It didn’t work when the files were nagios.nagios owned either.

-rwxrwxr-x 1 apache nagios 144372 Apr 3 15:46 trends.cgi

There are no PHP errors either. I am running RH ES 5 in case this might point to a problem. Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?
