If you are using apache 1.3.##, then you can configure any subdirectory of your htdocs directory to run cgi scripts by adding the following to your httpd.conf file:
        <Directory /usr/local/apache/htdocs/somedir>
                Options +ExecCGI
Or, if your server allows .htaccess files (not a good idea for large sites or slow servers), then you can create a .htaccess file in the directory where you want to run cgi scripts. The file should contain this line:

Options +ExecCGI

Check out the following link for more info about configuring an apache server:

Specifically, this link for cgi configuration:
