I'm trying to install a social networking CGI script on my Apache/Linux server running PHP. I'm installing the files under mysite.com/cgi-bin/members/admin.cgi //setup.cgi //login.cgi, etc. My server does not want to start executing these files when going to the URL for system setup. So I'm in a bit of a conundrum because I'm wondering if Apache servers running PHP are notorious for the cgi-bin directory blues? I would bet the farm that the files would initiate if I placed them in the main directory of my site. The developer states that it doesn't matter if it goes in the main directory or cgi-bin but I prefer the cgi-bin because at present I have a .htaccess file in the main and I'm concerned that it may pose an issue with it's site forwarding script. I have also changed the file permissions of these scripts so they would execute on call. (chmod 755). This cgi script also has a self contained data base that does not require use of the Mysql.(chmod 766). I don't think this is the problem but I'm just putting it out there. So, if anybody out there knows a way I can utilize this script within cgi-bin, your advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
