CGI not working out-of-the-box - not loaded
« on: April 24, 2017, 11:02:25 PM »
I'm using CWPpro version pretty much out of the box.  I installed the regular version on a VPS last week the paid for the Pro update, and this is what I got.

The problem I had is that cgi-bin scripts weren't working on any of my hosted domains.  I checked the vhosts.conf and the ScriptAlias directives were there (okay, the path was missing a closing quote but that didn't matter and anyway has already been reported), but I kept getting the contents of my script files served rather than the output from executing them.

After entirely too long reading around about the ScriptAlias directive I thought to check for mod_cgi, and it wasn't loaded.  The fix was to edit httpd.conf and uncomment
Code: [Select]
LoadModule cgid_module modules/
After restarting the Apache server, CGI scripts started to work.
