virtual hosts and excuting CGI
I basically new to Linux. Running Red Hat 9, on a laptop.
What I want to accomplish in the end is having a littel server inside my laptop. I do a lot of website design and work with Movable type, and I like like to edit and test the stuff on my computer with out up-loading to a remote server.
I know that I have apache insatlled and runnign, the httpd, and some databases launching during boot. I've also put some files under var/html/www/ so that I can access my site at http : // localhost/ but when I try and run a cgi script such as mt.cgi I just get the text file read-out. I don't want to actually set up my system as a sever that others on the internet can access, it's just for me on the computer runnign redhat. So, if someone could point me in the right direction for what I need to do next, and maybe some documentation? that would be really great.
Thanks so much you'all
