I have written a small web application in CGI (perl) on a Fedora 15 system. Apache is serving up the pages fine except for one file that uses the perl module PDF::API2 that writes pdf files. It is supposed to drop the pdf in the html folder, but will not write. When I run the cgi file from the command prompt as root it works perfectly, as user - will not write. So - permissions problem. I have tried everything I can think of - I disabled SElinux, I've set permissions on the cgi file so everyone in the world can read write execute, i've dug around in the httpd.config file, I am at a total loss. I need help.

Skills: apache, pdf
