            Bug ID: 64466
           Summary: wrong http://www.boutell.com/cgic/ link in
                    https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/howto/cgi.html
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4-HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: docs@httpd.apache.org
          Reporter: prohlep@math.bme.hu
  Target Milestone: ---

https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/howto/cgi.html

contains a bad link

in section "CGI modules/libraries" (this is close to the end of this page)

concerning "If you're writing CGI programs in C, there are a variety of
options. One of these is the CGIC library, from".

The bad link is "http://www.boutell.com/cgic/",

ending up at "https://www.boutell.co.uk/bad-credit-loans/",

what seems to be a business site, having no thematic connection with CGI.

I suggest the thematically proper link: http://web.mit.edu/wwwdev/www/cgic.html

which seems to be the proper home of "cgic: an ANSI C library for CGI
Programming
By Thomas Boutell".
