CGI and Apache


I have apache 2 set up on my server and I put a folder cgi-bin in the document root with my cgi scripts. When I go to the file it gives me a 404, and I have the correct url. When I go to the folder it will not allow me to view it. My configuration file is blank and my permissions are okay. I want to be able to execute cgi and pl files. I have perl installed and I thin the problem is in my configuation file.

Thanks for any help, Sevoma

Thanks, your site was very helpful.
So I would use this
<Directory /var/www/cgi-bin>
ExecCGI
</Directory>
Is that correct to enable it?

I think I have to install this also, right? libapache2-mod-scgi

Have your add this directive:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"

Note that if you include a trailing / on the url-path then the server will require a trailing / in order to expand the alias.
That is, if you use Alias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/" then the url /cgi-bin will not be aliased.
