I hope someone can help me this is driving me nuts. I have just installed a fresh copy of FreeBSD 5.3, and from the ports collection I installed perl5.8.6 and speedyCGI 2.221. Apache 2.053 with a working suexec is installed and working well.

When I open in my brower I get an oh-so-vaugue "Internal Server Error". httpd-error.log reports:

[Sat Feb 12 17:04:30 2005] [error] [client] YOU HAVEN'T DISABLED SET-ID SCRIPTS IN THE KERNEL YET!, referer:
[Sat Feb 12 17:04:30 2005] [error] [client] FIX YOUR KERNEL, PUT A C WRAPPER AROUND THIS SCRIPT, OR USE -u AND UNDUMP!, referer:
[Sat Feb 12 17:04:30 2005] [error] [client] speedy_backend[61441]: perl_parse error, referer:
[Sat Feb 12 17:04:31 2005] [error] [client] speedy[61439]: Cannot spawn backend process, referer:
[Sat Feb 12 17:04:31 2005] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers:, referer:

A simple perl test script from the same directory runs fine unless I use /usr/local/sbin/speedy_suid to run it. /usr/bin/perl works great.

In addition, if I run:

mail# /usr/local/bin/speedy_suidperl /usr/local/www/cgi-bin/openwebmail/

It outputs the HTML as it's supposed to. So everything works except apache isn't letting speedy_suidperl run for some reason.

Openwebmail requires speedyCGI though, correct? is there any way around this?!?!

Thanks in advance for any help,
