Web Service

     Sorry for the downtime in web service today.  It appears suexec which is used to set the web server permissions for a given users files lost it’s setuid attribute yesterday.  Not sure how but the update time on the file coincided with when I did system updates and the Apache Makefile for 2.4.49 now installs it without this necessary bit set so I suspect it relates to an update and a rebuild that was necessary to accommodate library changes.  At any rate, I rebuilt it just to be sure someone hadn’t modified it hoping I would then set the bit again and I set the immutable bit which should prevent Ubuntu’s package manage from messing with it again.
