ok, well I removed CYGWIN and installed a Ubuntu 10.10 64bit virtual box and now I have it running, but I still can't get it to run my CGI script from my webpage that i have on Ubuntu platform. I was wondering if there was a certain way that I need to install apache or whatever to get it running correctly.
Well, I got my linux up and running, my code runs fine when I run it in the terminal, then I tried to run the HTML and have that run my CGI and it just showed the code, therefore i then installed apache2 through the terminal and that is far as I have gone. I recall that you mentioned that I needed to setup the httpd.conf file. I was wondering if you could step me through as how to do so.
I am not sure how ubuntu splits the configuration out, but there
are a few generic points you need to bear in mind (and tel us about ;}).
Are you trying to use CGI from users home, of from apache's cgi-bin
directory? The way CGI works is that the scripts AREN'T in the htdocs
directory, but in cgi-bin ... have a look though your existing httpd.conf
(and the conf subdir(s)) under it.
