Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.6 and CGI problem - solved - doc bug?
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 21:29:24 GMT
Thanks to my not reading Joshua Silve's reply and his second correction 
everything is working.

I needed a Directory entry for the directory that had the *html files that 
call the JavaScript and CGI files. So I needed three entries as follows:

For the file with *html:
     AllowOverride None
     Options +Includes
     AddType text/html .html
     AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .html
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

For the JavaScript area:
     AllowOverride None
     Options +Includes
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

For the CGI scripts:
     AllowOverride None
     Options +ExecCGI
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

I'll give the Apache people a few days to read this as I think this is a 
doucmentation bug.

1. I think the http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/cgi.html should have 
link to http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/ssi.html. Some of the data 
is related and required to get CGI running.

2. An example of http.conf entries (like given above) should be included 
with explanation on why each entry is needed with a recommended settings 
(which would need someone with more experience than me).

Thanks,

David
