There are two troubles about WebMO on RHEL4U5.

1) SELinux...solved
Recently SELinux seems to be default.
If SELinux is active, the following commands are required to access the files under /home/user/public_html
"/sbin/restorecon /home/user/public_html" and "/sbin/restorecon -R /home/user/public_html".

2) Error for access to login.cgi
The following error is returned
after access to http://localmachine/~user/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi.

Is it caused by the configration of Apache?


Software error:

Invalid filehandle errorLog

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (root@localhost), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

I found the the description about SELinux
in the instration of Fedora core 4.

The instruction solves the trouble.

I wish that I could activate SELinux again.

It may be possible to run WebMO with SELinux, but it will probably require some work.

See, for example,

It looks like you would need to all SELinux write access to the WebMO user directory, and the WebMO cgi-bin directory for the httpd_sys_script_t type.
