Busybox httpd help


Hello

I'd like to run the httpd to use cgi.
so I've installed the busybox.
and wrote httpd.conf and inetd.conf to /etc.
and mkdir /www/cgi-bin and ran httpd.
(document root is /www)

Quote:
~# httpd
then I just tried to access to the server from a client (with brower).

Quote:
http://ipaddress/cgi-bin/test.cgi (in browser)
of course, it doesn't work.

I'm a newbie in Busybox.
There are only binaries (httpd, inetd) in Busybox httpd
so I've no idea how to start (how to configure, which files to need, and so on).
Could you let me know what to do after installing busybox httpd?
or good references or sites?

Thanks in advance.

AFAIK you only need inetd.conf if you run inetd (services that don't run standalone).

If you look at the comments in busybox/networking/httpd.c you'll get some examples. Adding "-vv" to your httpd commandline should show more details, could come in handy.
