- Subject: Getting CGI to work at all ( Jun 29, 2000, 10:15:29 )
Please Help. Ihave been trying to do this since April! (using a binary download of Apache for Solaris. Yesterday I downloaded, compiled and installed 1.3.12
per your instructions above.)

If I insert the text

Here is some CGI output:n:

into the index.html.en and do a refresh with the browser, I get no output
from the script, embedded in the page. If I view source, the above is what I see, not the embedded replacement text. It is definitely reloading as each
time I modify the html, I increment a digit in the :n: above. Since I
have made no mods to the httpd.conf I expect this to work surely?. Its their
test script inserted in their test home page!

Apache documentation is extensive and tells you nothing about how to start up
CGI. I give them 0/10 for documentation. Its like Microsofts - lots of it and not one practical fact or HOW-TO in there. Searching the web produces nothing
useful that I can find although to be fair 1 million hits on +Apache +CGI
means I have no chance of picking the wheat from the chaff.

Please help me with a blow by blow how-to like the install one above. I cannot believe this is so hard.

Thanks in desperation
