Subject Re: [users@httpd] .htaccess
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2004 14:33:42 GMT
I saw the files in the remote host server that maintains the files. There is no httpd.conf
file in the conf directory. Is there anyother place i can find it? I assume CGI wouldnt run
without this .conf file. But i observed a couple of CGI files running. I am not sure whats
going on. Can you help me with this issue. I am not clear about the server not having the
httpd.conf file.
 Also ScriptAlias directive poiting to cgi-bin directory in httpd.conf would mean that the
scripts in cgi-bin would be executed right?

There is probably a ScriptAlias directive in your httpd.conf file pointing to 
your cgi-bin directory that needs to be commented or removed.

(not execute by default...other than turning off permissions).
