[REBOL] Re: CGI configuration help requested

From: rebol:svendx:dk at: 15-Nov-2000 0:42

Hello Douglas, I resently installed FreeBSD on our home server, and had Apache display the exact same error message. I found the problem to be that the REBOL binary wasn't executable by 'others', and since Apache tried to run REBOL as 'nobody' it failed. For me, the problem disapeared when I gave 'others' 'execute' right to rebol. Best regards Thomas Jensen On 14-Nov-00, you wrote:
