I want to run a Perl CGI script (
a_web_page.cgi) from my dev box
.1.20 that runs a bash script from the same folder (
This script then runs a SSH command to another server
1.10 that runs a script that simply returns a string.
Running the script manually (
./host_script.sh) works as long as I make
me the owner of the keys. (The keys are stored in the same folder as the scripts, for testing.)
By default the owner of the keys is
The thing is, even with
apache owning these keys, it still doesn't work. I've explained below.
These commands are being run from a vm on
192.168.1.20.(dev box) I got onto this VM via ssh from my local box on
192.168.1.10Target machine with
script1.sh. This script returns a string.
192.168.1.20Server that runs apache web server and has
host_script.sh. (I am running these commands on this box.)
192.168.1.50My local machine, shouldn't really factor in, but put it here just in case it helps.
ls -a -l

At this stage I can see that the SSH to
192.168.1.10 is failing, so let's give me permissions to run the
host_script.sh directly and run it.
sudo chown me test
This is a script on the 192.168.1.10 server!
(This string is returned from
1.10, it's just an echo statement)
So running the script as myself works fine, as long as I have permissions to read the keys.
