If the server is running under the nobody
account, you have to set the permissions to
rwxr-xr-x or 0755 for your
files and directories. This is insecure, because other users on the
same machine can read your files.
panic# chmod 0755 /home/stas/modperl
If you aren't running the server with your username,
you have to set these permissions for all the files created under
this directory so Apache can read and execute them.
In the following examples, we assume that you run the server under
your username, and hence we set the scripts'
permissions to 0700.
