    (13)Permission denied: exec of '../targetselect' failed


    Howdy,

    I have an application that executes from several places in the doc root of the server. On an older system this works great. On a new CentOS 5.2 system it fails... A LOT... with errors like the title of this thread.

    I have backed out httpd and some dependencies with "rpm -e --nodeps" so that the httpd version is the same on both systems. See a list of the 4 rpms below.

    The problem remains unchanged after restarting the server.

    I don't know enough about Apache to locate where the problem is.

    Can any of you Masters help me please? What info do you require? I'll send it asap.

    Regards,

    George...

    Howdy,

    Many thanks to all of you who responded to my desperate plea for help...

    The problem was that /bin had somehow gotten the wrong permissions, supposed to be 755 was 700.

    Regards,

    George...
