Subject [users@httpd] cgi scripts not running
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2005 19:28:08 GMT
I cannot get my cgi scripts to run; the script is displayed in the web
browser instead.

I presume the problem is that the cgi directory is not recognised as a
directory containing scripts.

 

I have checked  httpd.conf for:

 

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/  “/var/www/cgi-bin/”

 

I do wonder if this line is being seen, unless I put the entire path in my
script the file cannot be found.

 

 

I have also tried adding  AddHandler cgi-script  .cgi

 

and checked that an Option directive is included:

 

<Directory “/var/www/cgi-bin/”>

Options ExecCGI

 

AllowOverride None

Allow from all

Order allow,deny

 

</Directory>

 

 

just to see if that would work, but it does not :-(

 

 

I’ve checked that the scripts are set as executable and are executable by
others (i.e. everyone)

 

 

I’ve run apachectl configtest gives Syntax ok

 

 

What I’m I doing wrong, any suggestion would be most greatly appreciated!

 

 

I am using Fedora Core 3, Apache 2.0

 

 

Many thanks

 

 

Stephen
