I installed apache2 on ubuntu. I added the next to
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/PROJECT/cgi-bin/"
I can open the cgi file basically copy the cgi file to
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/hello.cgi[DocumentRoot directory] and access the URL
http://localhost/cgi-bin/hello.cgi, however i get cannot access the file basically place it in
/home/PROJECT/cgi-bin/hello.cgi despite the fact that
ScriptAlias is placed and apache2 restarted.
Any factor that i'm missing here ?
I'd exactly the same problem. The main reason is at httpd.conf, I needed to remove global
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/cgi-bin/
otherwise everything beginning /cgi-bin/ fell into /var/www/cgi-bin/.
