Enabling CGI and Perl on Apache 2.0.47


Hi,

I've got Apache 2.0.47 installed on Mandrake 9.1. PHP and MySQL are working just fine, but I just can't manage to enable Perl and CGI on it. I had the "Internal Server Error" for quite some time, and later I installed the scriptalias via webmin rather then by editing the config file manually. Now it says that I don't have enough permissions, but the file and the cgi-bin are on 777 So like, if anybody could go over it again from scratch I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Jorn.

I have the same problem!

I recently installed sqwebmail 3.6.0 and I can't get the login page. In order to be able to open the login page, it's necessary to set a ScriptAlias in httpd.conf and specify the path to the sqwebmail binary, like this:

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

<Directory /var/www/cgi-bin>
AllowOverride All
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

These are lines from my httpd.conf

The sqwebmail binary file is in /var/www/cgi-bin and both the directory and the file have 777 permissions, but when I open a browser and type http://mydomain/cgi-bin/

I get a no permission error from apache!

Watching the apache logs I found this:

[Wed Sep 17 12:50:28 2003] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/cgi-bin

What could be wrong if everything seems OK?

Regards
