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

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?????
