Hi again:

Just try to access this to see my problem.
http://164.42.152.63/~webmo/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi
As you can see now Im having this error, I need to highlight that my openSuse 11.3 installation did an update by itself. Please help me solve this issue, Thankz and sorry again.

This suggests that WebMO cannot write to the error log file, which means that it is probably running under a new UID. Your SUSE upgrade perhaps disabled suEXEC or otherwise changed the UID under which WebMO is running.

Run the diagnose.pl script (located in the WebMO.install/scripts subdirectory) and report the results. This is a good start.

It appears that suexec is disabled, probably somehow due to your OS upgrade. You can either:
1) re-enable suexec (not sure how on Ubuntu)
OR
2) do a "chmod 0777 -R ~webmo/webmo" and "chmod 0777 -R ~webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/interfaces"

to let the web server write to those locations.

I tried your second suggestion and got this error on the second command:
chmod: cannot access `/home/webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/interfaces': No such file or directory

The latter should have been:

~webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/webmo/interfaces

Exactly that I typed...
chmod 0777 -R ~webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/interfaces
