Oh, no.  You it's as an example, in case you do happen to need it.  If 
you already have some CGI program that is located in /cgi-bin/ on the 
site, then yes.  If it's located in /script/, then you just change all 
the times I said "cgi-bin" to "scripts".  It's just the structure I was 
trying to outline.  You should check your source for the sites.  If it's 
PHP, it depends how you run PHP, but if for example it's a module 
(probably the most common on Windows) then you probably need no cgi-bin 
or ScriptAlias or anything.  I always try the least, and then add what I 
need if something is noisy.  ;-)  Same with ssl, private, and so on. 
public_html is just the name I am used to from Unix, out of habit.  I 
already know it's HTML, and not all HTML, often other things, so I just 
call it "public" now.  But the name doesn't matter at all.  What matters 
is that you change the conf file to match your folder name.  ;-)
