I read up at Apache but I’m still a newbie at this. I have a Perl script that needs to be able to write to a directory. I hope I’m mistaken, but reading about Suexec on Dreamhost’s wiki makes me believe that this is not possible.
Essentially what the script does is that the user fills out a form and hits the “Submit” button. The contents of the form are then stored in a local file. The instructions on the script read: “This location will need to be capable of having information written to it by the web script.”
I believe I can put the script in a different directory than the file that gets written. Is that the way around this issue? I’ve tried running the script but I get a 500 error, and also a 404 error.
Thanks so much for your help!
