in thread XML parser unable to open file

Hello

Yes the files are readable and have been given full permission (777). The exact string passed is "/opt/xmls/filename.xml"

The same set of code is already working in different servers, this one is being newly built and all the perl modules have been added , but this is where it is getting stuck. Is it possible due to Linux version, it might be a problem ? The new one/not working ones are on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.8 (Maipo) and the old ones/working ones are on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.7 (Santiago).

    You really should not grant executable permissions to data files, set the "x" bit only for executables and for directories. Also, you usually do not want your files and directories group and world writeable, i.e. set the "w" bit only for the owner, but not for group and others.

    What about the SELinux context? Did you check the audit log?

    Thanks for clarifying wrt the file name. You still need to provide an SSCCE, though. What code you have provided is not self-contained, and does not include a file name.
