Description Hal Roberts 2003-03-11 23:10:54 UTC
ap_can_exec checks for the execute bit manually, which doesn't work on acl
filesystems.  It should use the POSIX access() call instead.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2004-10-23 11:48:28 UTC
This is fixed in 2.0, which does use access() to check for executability before
spawning a CGI process.  Though it does so even if suexec is used unlike 1.3
which is probably a (different) bug.
