Subject [users@httpd] Script not found or unable to stat on XP
Date Sat, 12 Feb 2005 23:47:28 GMT
This is a new install of apache 1.3 on windows xp. I'm familiar with apache 
on linux
but not for the XP os.
I am using the default httpd which was produced during the install process.
Scriptalias is set as follows:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/cgi-bin/"
and directory is set as
     <Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/cgi-bin">
         AllowOverride None
         Options None
         Order allow,deny
         Allow from all
a test script - has been placed in the cgi-bin directory, python is 
installed and
the script runs with python.
Pointing the browser to http://localhost/cgi-bin/
gives the following error message from firefox:
Not Found
The requested URL /cgi-bin/ was not found on this server.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80

Inspection of the error log shows the following:
(2)No such file or directory: script not found or unable to stat: 
c:/program files/apache group/apache/cgi-bin/
I'm pretty lost here, any insights would be appreciated.
p.s. my apologies if this is not sent as plain text, I'm out of my element 
here, they've
       taken away my "mutt"
