Ori,

I'm not much of a programmer.  Basically the I would try the following;

Dirty trick: Did you try copying the whatever.so to where the standard libs are, maybe is /usr/lib, or /usr/local/lib

Another option is to reconfigure ld.  Update the ld.so.conf, and rerun ldconfig.

cheers.

i ran a new script as cgi and the result was like this:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH= /home/ori/wiexp
/usr/bin/ldd /usr/local/apacge/cgi-bin/convert
        libsc_da.so => not found
        libsc_ex.so => not found
        libsc_fa.so => not found
        libsc_ch.so => not found
        libsc_fi.so => not found
        libsc_ut.so => not found
ldconfig -p
        libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x4002c000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
        libvs_zip.so (libc6) => /home/ori/wiexp/libvs_zip.so
        libvs_xy.so (libc6) => /home/ori/wiexp/libvs_xy.so
        libvs_xl5.so (libc6) => /home/ori/wiexp/libvs_xl5.so
        libvs_w97.so (libc6) => /home/ori/wiexp/libvs_w97.so

o_helman,

That was intersting.  Sometime a silly mistake can be fatal -- at least it gets me scratching my head for a few days.

Anyway, since you had found your solution, next would be closing this question.  You could drop by Community Support, and request for a deletion, or pts refunded -- since it's quite a good PAQ.  Or, you can award me :)

cheers.

helman,

wait a minute -- I think 777 is very (VERY) dangerous.  Perhaps you might want to try with 755 (owner full access, group and other read-execute).  this should work since the apache process only need to have read (I doubt execute bit is needed!) permission to the libs.

cheers.
