Do I have to create a cgi-bin directory to run PERL / CGI scripts?


No!  You can place your executable scripts anywhere within the docs directory (or below) and they'll run fine.  Because of our super secure and easy to use permission scheme you do not need to change the default permissions to execute the file - 770 will work great.

 

Important Note!  Do NOT create a cgi-bin directory and expect this to work as the name 'cgi-bin' is reserved for our main servers scripts.
