How to configure cgi-bin in Home Folder?

Earlier I explained how to run websites from the home. Today I will tell how to configure for cgi-bin so that you can run cgi scripts from home itself.

1. Open /etc/apache2/httpd.cfg file.

$ sudo vi /etc/apache2/httpd.cfg file

2. Copy the following lines in it.

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/priyanka/public_html/cgi-bin/
              <Directory /home/priyanka/public_html/cgi-bin/>
              AllowOverride None
              Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
              SetHandler cgi-script
              Order allow,deny
              Allow from all
              AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

3. Restart the apache with the following command:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

And you are done. 🙂
