Question Perl config


I'm trying to edit the Perl config to enable scripts to be run from any directory (that is under /var/html/www). But I'm having no luck so far. I've had a nosey round the apache conf files, but not sure what it is I have to edit/add. Anyone got any ideas?

(PS. I'm a bit of a newbie, so go slowly )

In httpd.conf you need to add "ExecCGI" to the options directive eg:
Options Indexes ExecCGI Inlcudes

Do this for in the section:
<DIRECTORY /var/html/www>
