Quoting Doug Alcorn (doug@lathi.net):

> makecat and insuring that cgi-bin/catalogname isn't setuid.  However,
> I'm still a no go.  
> What suexec complains about is "target uid/gid (508/508) mismatch with
> directory (508/508) or program (510/510)".  What I get out of this is

> What can I do?  Disabling suexec isn't really an option.

Sorry, not much except set SocketPerms to 0666 or 0660, whichever
will work. This is an Apache configuration issue -- if the permissions
are OK, Interchange will work.
