Just upgraded from F26 to F27 without incident. However, the web
browser interface to the "BackupPC" application
(BackupPC-4.1.3-4.fc27.x86_64) is now broken. The BackupPC daemon
itself is working properly, and backups are running.
ps -ef | grep -i backup
backuppc 1130 1 0 Nov23 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/perl
However, attempting to access the browser administration pages of the
application generates "service unavailable" (503) errors.
The Apache error log (*not* any BackupPC log) shows:
[Thu Nov 23 10:52:26.203136 2017] [cgid:error] [pid 1162:tid
139834463086336] (13)Permission denied: [client ::1:43468] AH01257:
unable to connect to cgi daemon after multiple tries:
Everything was working properly with F26.
Where's the permission denied coming from?
# ls -l BackupPC_Admin
-rwxr-x--- 1 backuppc apache 3924 Aug 2 12:51 BackupPC_Admin
Both apache and the BackupPC daemons are running under the userid 'backuppc'
