I wrote an AppleScript CGI a few years back, but when I tried to resurrect it the other day, I wasn't able to get Apache to recognize my script and run it. Any idea how to do this on Mac OS X?

    Unfortunately (or, fortunately, depending on how you look at it), OS 9's web sharing and the Apache web server that powers OS X's web sharing are two completely different beasts. You'd be better off re-writing your script in a UNIX scripting language such as PHP or Perl to get things done in OS X. Unless, of course, someone has written an AppleScript-CGI bridge for Apache :).
