CGI outside the /cgi-bin/ directory

    Hi all,

    I would like my users to be able to run CGI scripts in directories outside the /cgi-bin/ directory, for example the root directory (httpdocs).

    I've searched the forums and the FAQa, but couldn't find how to do this in Plesk 7.5 in combination with Apache 2.0. Could someone help me out with this?

    actually the options directive in apache needs to allow the running of cgi scripts outside of aliased directories.

    here are the apache docs on it.

    The Options directive controls which server features are available in a particular directory.

    option can be set to None, in which case none of the extra features are enabled, or one or more of the following:

    All options except for MultiViews. This is the default setting.
    Execution of CGI scripts using mod_cgi is permitted.
