How to create cgi-local?

    I've tried Google but cannot find an answer. I need to run a perl script within a password protected directory. How can I create a subdirectory cgi-local with the appropriate permissions to run this?

    I'm a newbie, but comfortable with FTP or working via SSH.

    Cheers, Jason

    plesk8 allows you to easily password protect a directory in the cgi-bin, so really unsure as to what your query really is.

    We have a directory already secured with a wide variety of username/password. This is managed by a php script and is located under httpdocs.

    I have a cgi-script that needs to be run under this directory (so it is protected by the same set of username/password).

    If I locate it under the CGI bin, the original php script cannot secure two directories at once, so it wont work.
