I've had the basic WebMO working at home for a while now. Bringing the Pro version up on my school's system is a horse of a different color, however. I cannot see where anything I've done does NOT fit the directions for the installation, so am hoping someone can point out what's flaky?

I've installed WebMO under the user "webmo," following all instructions and using the suggested prompts.

Suexec has been installed and enabled (it's a Debian system). My current userdir is configured as follows:

<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
UserDir public_html
UserDir disabled root

# SetHandler cgi-script
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

<Directory /home/*/public_html>
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Indexes
# Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
Options MultiViews SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec

# attempt to configure for WebMO on 8/17/2015
# AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Require all granted
Require all denied

# attempt to configure for WebMO on 8/17/2015

<Directory /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin>
Options ExecCGI
SetHandler cgi-script


When I attempt to log in, I get the Perl script displayed. I get it that something is wrong with the configuration, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what. Does anyone see a problem with all this?

Many thanks!

Ha. Finally found the issue... the cgid module wasn't enabled. Cleaned up the userdir.conf file a bit, and things start up normally!
