Our Linux web servers have the capability to run CGI scripts in your own "cgi-bin" directory. Scripts may be written in Perl, Python and CGI languages.
Using CGI Scripts
Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts:
- Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings.
- All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx). If you need help in changing script permissions, please see our article about setting file and user permissions.
- Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)
- The first line of each script must read:
a) #!/usr/bin/perl (for Perl)
b) #!/usr/bin/python (for Python)
- Ensure the permissions are set to 755
