Description Malcolm Scott 2003-11-25 15:48:53 UTC
Currently, installing SquirrelMail (and probably other webapps too) puts them in
/var/www/localhost/cgi-bin - which is not the right place for PHP apps (should
be /var/www/localhost/htdocs). This is because of a variable name error in the
webapp-determine-cgibindir function of webapp-apache.eclass: this function sets
HTTPD_ROOT to the location of the cgi-bin directory, when it should in fact set

The following patch against /usr/portage/eclass/webapp-apache.eclass fixes the

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
emerge squirrelmail
Actual Results:  
SquirrelMail gets installed into /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/squirrelmail.

Expected Results:  
It should be installed to /var/www/localhost/htdocs/squirrelmail.

Fix committed, and should be on an rsync server near you within the hour.

Please test, and let me know that it now works ;-)

Thanks a lot,
