i have a cgi script that does this: $checkerr=`sudo shutdown -r now`;

when i run the script from console, it does what it's supposed to do -- 
shutdown. when i run the script from the browser (the cgi is run by my 
box's webserver - apache), it refuses to shut down. my httpd error_log says:
[Wed Jul 26 01:29:53 2000] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down
[Wed Jul 26 01:36:24 2000] [notice] Apache/1.3.12 (Unix)  (Red Hat/Linux)
PHP/3.0.15 mod_perl/1.21 configured -- resuming normal operations

my box runs on linux redhat 6.2, and the sudo package i installed last 
night was v1.6.3p4

can't this be done from the browser? i need to let someone login (via an 
html form) to reboot the computer.
