Subject: ownership of cgi program relevant?

Hi All,

I'm using apache_1.2b4 on SGI, and mod_fastcgi 1.4.3.  I'm wondering if
the cgi program needs to be owned by the user the web server is running
as.  I'm getting the error

apollo% ./run.sh
Syntax error on line 111 of /httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
AppClass: Could not access file /httpd/cgi-bin/fast.fpl

when I attempt to run the web server as a different user.  This user has
no problems running the program on the command line.  fast.fpl has
permissions -rwxr-xr-x.

Thanks for any help

Mike
