[MacBook Pro 2014, Mac OS 10.13.3]

I have my apache install setup to use mod_fcgid. However, when I restart my Mac, or after it restarts from sleeping, /usr/sbin/apachectl does not create /var/run/mod_fcgid, which is needed along with correct permissions.

Since I cannot modify /usr/sbin/apachectl, due to SIP, so I'm wondering where can I add the necessary commands to create the folder?

  • Is the module loaded? – Allan Feb 24 '18 at 9:59
  • Yes. To get it to work, I just need to create the folder and set permissions. – gone Feb 24 '18 at 10:19
  • So, the answer is "No, it's not working." apachectl shouldn't be modified to get modules loaded (this is why it's protected by SIP). From a quick cursory search, this [Q/A ](stackoverflow.com/questions/7303134/…) seems to indicate the problem is with mod_fcgid and not with anything on Apache or macOS – Allan Feb 24 '18 at 10:38
  • The issue is that apachectl doesn't take into account that mod_fcgid needs the /var/run/mod_fcgid folder setup. So, my question is; where is the best place, given that I can't edit apachectl, to put the required commands so that when Apache is started up, the folders are ready. – gone Feb 24 '18 at 15:58
  • one could use configuration management (e.g. Ansible or whatnot) to ensure necessary directories and so forth exist before a command is run – thrig Feb 24 '18 at 18:20
