configure cgi

Recommended Posts


I have apache 2.0.55 ,winxp and active perl 5.88.

The instructions for installing this on apache to run cgi scripts are confusing to say the least.

my http.conf has these changes to run cgi scrips on my c:/www/cgi-bin directory . It does run html/php no problems.

In httpd.conf I add

<Directory "C:/www/cgi-bin">
Options ExecCGI
AllowOverride None


AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

I run the below file (which runs on the command line so perl is installed properly) and I get a 404 not found error on the webpage on http://localhost/cgi-bin/test.pl with the file in c:/www/cgi-bin

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, World.";
