Subject [users@httpd] Problem configuring cgi
Date Sat, 15 Aug 2009 05:29:34 GMT

I am a new user of Apache HTTP server and one of the thing I am trying  to
do is to map all my request, valid or invalid in a way that a single script,
say X (without any extension),  gets executed. For this I try to set my
Document Root directory to my root directory, say www. I also the
DirectryIndex to map to the script X.

DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2/www"

<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

<Directory "/usr/local/apache2/www">
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks Indexes
    SetHandler cgi-script
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

Alias / "/usr/local/apache2/www/"

The above shows the relevant part of my httpd.conf file. I am working with
latest version of Apache Server and Ubuntu 9.04. The problem I am facing is:

[1] Whenever I hit http://localhost/ , it always gives me 403 Error. In the
error log, it tells me that I am trying to run directory as Script. I can
however, run all the scripts beneath this folder (as desired).
[2] I am still not able to map all request to my localhost to this script.
If I send an invalid request, it gives me URL not found error.

I was wondering if somebody could point me how to solve this problem. I also
try using ScriptAlias instead of Alias but ended without any success.
