Subject:   still don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/ after using "chmod"
Date:   2003-01-12 01:04:56
From:   anonymous2
in /library/webserver/cgi-executables/, I used sudo chmod 755 test-cgi to change the file permission. But, when I tried to load /cgi-bin/ in a web browser, I still get "You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/ on this server."


I'd appreciate it any help. Thanks.

    I had that same problem. I had to login as the 'root' user make changes and then log back in as myself. I had to do the same thing for making changes to the httpd config file.

      I've just come across this article, (May 2003) I'm running OS X 10.2.5 and for the life of me I can't get this working. I keep getting the same error

      chmod: test-cgi: Operation not permitted

      I'd like to learn how to set it up so that my users can have a folder in their directory called "cgi-bin" that will execute .cgi and .pl files (just like my ISP has)

      I know nothing about unix, but I've followed the tutorial every step of the way and repeated it about 5 times now and I can't get it working. Is there anybody out there still reading this?

      I tried to register but got a message telling me there was an 'internal server error' so I guess even O'Reilly has problems.

      Thanks,
