How I can get Suexec installed?


Can anybody help how I can get Suexec please?

“Failed to save website options : Suexec is enabled in the default template, but the suexec command was not found on your system.”

Thanks in advance.


The suexec program is part of Apache.

What is the output of these two commands:

dpkg -l apache2 find /usr -name suexec

The first command returns this:

> dpkg -l apache2 Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad) ||/ Name Version Description +++-===============================-==================================-============================================ un apache2 (no description available)

The second command returns nothing:

find /usr -name suexec

Hi Eric,

Just to let you know that Suexec is OK now. Following your hint about incorrect package source repository, I found a local copy of Lucid list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d, and placed it on the remote server. Everything is fine now. I am able to fetch correct packages, and install them.

I am grateful to you!
