Response to: Problem enabling all .cgi or .pl files


[Mon Jan 14 15:01:05 2002] [error] [client] Options ExecCGI is off in this directory: /Library/WebServer/Documents/helloWorld.cgi

Which basically tells us what we already knew ... I think.

    I added Exec/CGI to the options for:

    <Directory "/Library/WebServer/Documents">

    I guess it's a bit confusing, since there are a couple of things in httpd.conf that could be seen as overlapping, since I had already allowed CGIs anywhere by uncommenting this:
    # AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    (or so I thought).

    In any case, I am now up and happily (if insecurely) running. This is only a dev box for playing with, so I'm not too worried.

    Thanks again for the article!
