Users cannot log in to some Seapine web clients after the computer hosting the TestTrack Server or Seapine License Server is upgraded to Mac OS X 10.10 and later. The following web clients are affected:

  • Seapine License Server Web Admin Utility
  • SoloSubmit
  • TestTrack Web
  • TestTrack Web Server Admin Utility


Mac OS X 10.10 and later uses Apache 2.4. The mod_cgi module is not enabled by default in this Apache version.


Modify the Apache configuration file (httpd.conf) to enable the mod_cgi module.

    sudo cp /etc/apache2/httpd.conf /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.backup
  2. In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder.
  3. Enter /etc/apache2 and click Go.
  4. Drag the httpd.conf file to the desktop.
  5. Right-click the http.conf file and choose Open With > Other.
  6. Select /Applications/TextEdit and click Open.
  7. Delete # from the following line to uncomment it:
    #LoadModule cgi_module libexec/apache2/
  8. Save the file.
  9. Drag the modified httpd.conf file back to the /etc/apache2 folder. You are prompted to authenticate.
  10. Click Authenticate.
  11. Click Replace and enter your password.
  12. Enter the following commands in Terminal to fix ownership and permissions for the httpd.conf file:
    sudo chown root:wheel /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
  13. Enter the following command to restart the Apache web server:
