We have a very simple suid-wrapper script located on our server. When a person orders our software from us, we must configure this script with their server's document root information, and then compile it, and send the compiled script as an email attachment.
The process is pretty simple, but we'd like to automate it.
We're looking for a script that will be located on our server that will do the following.
1. From an html input form, accept the information for the client's document_root, and email address.
2. Modify one line on the file suid-wrapper.c to insert their document_root and save it as suid-temp.c.
3. Compile it with the command
gcc -o site-builder suid-temp.c
4. When the program is compiled, the script would email the site-builder file which was just compiled as an attachment to the email address specfied from the html form.
There's no need to compress the file, it will be very small already.
The text of the message will not be expected to change, so that could be hard coded into the script or set off as a separate template.
The server is a linux server, and this script would only be run on this one server.
