Subject Enabling CGI on Apache 1.3.23
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2002 06:48:59 GMT
I'm trying to get cgi to work on my Apache 1.3.23 Mandrake 8.2 computer.
I was told by someone on a forum to add this line to my httpd.conf file:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/cgi-bin/

I added the line and restarted Apache but it has not made any
difference. I can run cgi and perl scripts from the shell but I can run
them from a browser. I set the permissions correctly and even set them
to 777 just to make sure and they still can't be executed from a

If I type or I get back the
following message:

You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/test.cgi on this server.


Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.23 Server at Mithrilhall.Linux Port 80

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly apprciate
