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?

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,
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-apache-fc3/sn-suexec-and-cgi-scripts.html

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.
