fastcgi bind() error: permission denied

[Wed Oct 06 16:27:53 2010] [crit] (13)Permission denied: FastCGI: can’t create server “/opt/ai/core/gui/bin/”: bind() failed [/etc/httpd/logs/fastcgi/d6b459611d6278dea13062a91e78bbbb]

Mental note, if you see this error in /var/log/httpd/error_log …

Know that /etc/httpd/logs is a symlink to /var/log/httpd/ and this error is either permissions problem having to do with “apache” user trying to write following this symlink, OR SELinux is getting in the way.

At least in my case I disabled SELinux and fastcgi can now start up. Stuff like this drives me nuts…
