Subject [users@httpd] bizarre cgi stuff
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2002 22:38:36 GMT
Ok, I got the Perl cgi to work, the only thing is....

...all that ScriptAlias appears to do is prevent a directory listing of 
the cgi-bin directory AND prevent the DirectoryIndex directive from 
working inside the cgi-bin directory!

This is very bizarre.

Also, it doesn't appear to matter what directives I use to control 
where scripts are allowed to be executed; as long as I have

AddHandler cgi-script .pl

in or above the directory with the script, it will execute.

This is all rather odd to my mind.  I thought that the AddHandler would 
let scripts get executed and ScriptAlias (as one method) would indicate 
WHERE they should be executed.  Anywhere else they would just be normal 

Does anyone know what's going on or do I have a rogue version of Apache?
