I’m trying to install Gitweb on my Nginx server. Everything seems to be configured correctly, but I seem to be getting the following error in the gitweb.log:
`2015/06/08 08:42:05 [crit] 29135#0: *5 connect() to unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap.socket failed (13: Permission denied) while connecting to upstream, client: 188.8.131.52, server: git.mydomain.co.uk, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap.socket:", host: "git.mydomain.co.uk"`
I’ve checked the owner/permissions and all seems to be fine.
srwxr-xr-x 1 www-data www-data 0 Jun 8 08:44 /var/run/fcgiwrap.socket
The output of
ps aux | grep nginx is:
root 30283 0.0 0.0 90552 1296 ? Ss 08:59 0:00 nginx: master process /usr/sbin/nginx -g daemon on; master_process on; forge 30284 0.0 0.0 90884 1924 ?

Any ideas what the problem could be?
The socket has to be readable and writable by both client and server. Under the assumption that the server is running as
www-data and the client is running as
forge with group
forge, the following steps should fix the issue.
Change the group ownership of the socket to the group of user
chgrp forge /var/run/fcgiwrap.socket
Change the group permission to allow write for group
chmod g+w /var/run/fcgiwrap.socket
The socket will now be readable and writable by both server and client.
