Subject Re: [users@httpd] VirtualDirectory
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 11:25:50 GMT
This is the stuff about the VirtualDir that i have in my httpd.conf

NameVirtualHost *

<VirtualHost *>
    DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/htdocs/"
    ErrorLog logs/error_log
    CustomLog logs/access_log common

<VirtualHost *>
    DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/cgi-bin/dir/"
    ErrorLog logs/
    CustomLog logs/ common

As i said, works shows me the correct .pl file, but it doesn't process
it, it types it as a txt file

i have also tried having this

    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/dir/ "C:/Program Files/Apache

    <Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/cgi-bin/dir">
        AllowOverride None
        Options ExecCGI
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

But it doesn't help
Please someone tell me what i am doing wrong

Let's say you want your scripts to be served at, k?
Then you configure at the conf file like that:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/dir/ "/path/to/dir/"

And than you add the <Directory /path/to/dir> directives.

It's that simple.
All the best,
