Hi there, My partner has been working in root of a linux server and he
has been installing php and mysql so we can install an intranet CMS. He
has also made some changes to apache configs

Somewhere along the lines Both the webaccess for their e-mail system
and remote file access went down. We can now not access their email from
the outside.

I'm curious if anyone can help as to what we can do to fix this.

Hi,

Be less vague about the changes made, and provide the salient details,
for starters?

If messing with the Apache config started the death spiral, I would
start by reverting the Apache config.

What e-mail system's web access and what remote file access solutuon?
What version of SLES are you using?

Thanks, this is the partner in question. Essentially, we're having
issues with Groupwise Webaccess. It appears to authenticate through
LDAP, but I'm getting "Certificate Error: Navigation blocked" errors in
IE. I've reverted the Apache configs back to their originals, to no
avail. My yast2_vhosts.conf file directs requests from a particular IP
and port 53443 and at that point you get a login prompt with
"Authentication required: Protected", which I'm assuming is the LDAP
auth that's setup in yast2_vhosts.conf. I can give you any other
information and thanks in advance for your help!

This is SLES10, running Novell Groupwise applications for email and
document storage. Looking through the access logs in
/var/log/apache2/access_log I'm seeing GET requests for iManager.html
among other page elements (images, js, whatnot). When you login with
credentials on the login screen i mentioned above, you get a server
error "The server encountered an internal error and was unable to
complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an
error in a CGI script. Error 500".

Also, and perhaps on an unrelated note, the whole way I got into this
mess was installing PHP. I've done this a hundred times, but it simply
won't work, the module is being loaded and there are mime type handlers
setup correctly, just as in the php.net docs, but PHP files are still
popping download prompts on the client side.

Thanks again,
Steven
