Hi, ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dave Preston" <caffiend at simianbrotherhood.org> > I'd suspect that it's because you're not serving /var/www/cgi-bin/ to > the outside. What's your ScriptAlias set to? ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/" The full structure is this: /var/www/-cgi-bin -conf -htdocs -all -public -directories. So the .htacces in htdocs works ok, the one in cgi-bin doesn't, and I don't have root access to try one in www/. I can access cgi-scripts from the web, simply ipaddress/cgi-bin/script.pl . It seems like the problem is pretty basic, but I am not well aquanted with server structures. Thanks. Richard.
