Patching closedShop

  1. Make "cgi-bin" 755 as usual.
  2. Create a "vars" subdirectory in "cgi-bin"; set its ownership and group to "nobody/nogroup" (or "apache/nogroup", as appropriate) and the permissions to 775.
  3. Create an empty ".htpasswd" file in "vars".
  4. Save this patch in your "cgi-bin" and run patch -d . < cS.diff at the prompt (you may delete the diff file after you've done this.)
  5. Continue to set up closedShop as per the instructions in the article.
