Common CGI-BIN for Users?
I want to have a common CGI-BIN directory for multiple web sites, to prevent replicating redundant scripts and files.
I know this works with virtual hosting, having the domains point to subdirectories below a single user account. However, I want to set up some separate user accounts so that they reference a common CGI-BIN directory. This is necessary because some web features I want to provide do not work on virtual hosts.
Within the HTTPD.CONF file, I have pointed the ScriptAlias to another user's CGI-BIN directory. I have worked with various groups and permissions, to set up the proper access rights. However, I continue to encounter Forbidden (403) errors when accessing scripts.
What can be done to make this work properly?
