The file twiki_httpd_conf.txt in Release 4.0.4 has error in in line 42:

Options +ExecCGI FollowSymLinks

This +ExecCGI cause the CGI to fail, and hence the intial configure page fails with a Forbidden to access message.

removing the + fixes problem.

Fixing this will help the folks who install the Twiki from browser.

BTW, Twiki is a great software tool and fairly easy to use.

-- TWiki:Main.ShivanandSawant

I will investigate this one. The + means add the option to existing so I wonder why this is suddenly a problem.

But it may actually be best to control the options 100% instead of adding. Most admins do not understand half the Apache options so it is probably safest that we control it to exactly what is needed for TWiki.


I could not understand that the little + was there. I was so sure I went through the config after the TWiki:Codev.SecurityAlertCmdExecWithConfigure

TWiki:Main.ShivanandSawant you need to update your 4.0.4. Download http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/HotFix04x00x04x04. It contains several fixes to problems and security related updates. Also make sure you subscribe to the TWiki:Codev.TWikiAnnounceMailingList mailing list so you get the security alerts. The fix for this bug report was in one of those alerts. The fix was introduced already in 4.0.4-2 (hotfix 2)
