FreeBSD virtualmin install with suexec issue @ problem


I'm installing FreeBSD 8.1-release with:






u'll face some stupid errors like:


The Suexec command on your system is configured to only run scripts under /usr/local/www/data, but the Virtualmin base directory is /usr/home. CGI and PHP scripts run as domain owners will not be executed. .. your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin.



during installation apache 2.2 via ports, one file will be make as make options, edit it:

ee /var/db/ports/apache22/options


make sure the files have suexec options compiled in:  



anyway suexec by default will point to default webroot path only, change it to ( your virtualmin path ) and u need to add it manually:



save and recompile+compile+install your apache again 

cd /usr/ports/www/apache22

make install clean



edit your httpd.conf to include suexec module..

LoadModule suexec_module        libexec/apache22/mod_suexec.so


save and restart your apache..
