I am trying to set up mod_fcgid on my server. Part of the requirement is that Apache needs to create a socket file for mod_fcgid.
I specified the folder for Apache to write the socket data to:
I then specified this file in my fcgid.conf file as follows:
I then changed the owner of the folder to www-data (the apache user) and gave the onwer full permissions to the folder and its contents.
I was able to run my test fcgi app then.
When I rebooted the machine, I found that ownership of /var/lock/apache2/fcgid has been reset to root, and with permission reset to 700
I have the following questions:
Is there something specific about the /var/lock folder? - why is the permissions being reset after a reboot?
Should I move my socket file to another location (in case root automatically takes ownership of contents in this folder for security reasons?)
I am running Ubuntu 10.0.4 LTS 64 bit
