Date Wed, 06 Apr 2005 08:21:43 GMT
I keep getting this error in my apache logs

[Wed Apr 06 01:59:50 2005] [error] [client] Options ExecCGI 
is off in this directory: 
/home/clients/classicautographics/classic/www/html/upload.cgi, referer:

and this in the browser


You don't have permission to access /upload.cgi on this server.

but i have added the following to httpd.conf

<Directory "/home/clients/classicautographics/classic/www/html">
Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Note the is virtually hosted on my server and the web browser seems to think it is going to
Will apache take care of this on its own because according to logs it is 
tring to trying to access the right directory on the right server.  I 
have tried switching the url on the webpage to point specifically to 
but that gives me this in the browser and nothing in the logs. 

HTTP 404 - File not found
Internet Explorer

In case you have not guessed yet i am trying to upload files from a 
webpage using an cgi script called by a form on an html page that looks 
like this.

<FORM ACTION="/upload.cgi" METHOD="post" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">
 Photo to Upload: <INPUT TYPE="file" NAME="photo">
 Your Email Address: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="email_address">
 <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Submit Form">
