No licence file when installing linux webinator

Post by marc.paquette »

Hello,

I've downloaded linux version of free webinator (4.3) for libc6 (kernel 2.4.22, glibc-2.3.2, Mandrake Linux 9.2) and the install fails with the following:


CGI extension [ENTER for none]:
Checking dir with a web fetch...failed, will try again
Trying again with file...Ok
Verifying version...*** Failed ***
The Texis Monitor process failed to start, returning exit code 10.
Check that the /usr/local/morph3/license.* files
are read/writable by you and the CGI user.
View web server reply (y/n)? [ENTER for n]:

Effectively, there are no license.* files under /usr/local/morph3 dir. I'm running the install as root but specified "apache" as the user that runs the web server.

Any ideas ? What should I check now ?

PS: I can do "wget http://ls.thunderstone.com:80" and I get an answer generated by the server at thunderstone.

Thanks for any help.

Make sure that the webserver user has permission on the /usr/local/morph3 directory. You can also see if there is a /usr/local/morph3/texis/monitor.log file with error messages.

Make sure /usr/local/morph3 is read/writable by apache. Also check /usr/local/morph3/texis/monitor.log for errors: if it doesn't exist or has none, make sure it exists and is world-writable.

Ok thanks.
It was a permission problem : once I made the cgi-bin directory writable for apache (the user that runs the web server) and created a subdir "webinator" under DOCROOT (/var/www/html on my machine) owned by apache user, install completed with success.

Thanks,
Marc
