ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Check out the Apache manual pages for Server-Side Includes: mod_include.
One of the options is to allow execution of programs/scripts.
Other options include server-side scripting e.g. PHP/Perl etc.
Before you start, think about security. Can anyone else access the server, like while you're on-line? Do you want to allow anyone to run any script on your machine? Does it need to be suid root to run? You may want to restrict access to authenticated users via SSL only.
Just be careful and do your testing off-line first.
Distribution: Fedora, Mandriva, PCLOS, SUSE - anything a can get my hands on
I got right with SSI. eg.
<! --#exec cmd="ls" -- >
But I now have a new question. What happens if someone hosts my website, and I add a command like:
<! --#exec cmd="rm -rf /" -- >
to my webpage.
Would I then not delete all info on the server?????
