Enabling cgi-bin in XAMPP?

Postby tyklazeu » 26. February 2010 18:05

Hello,

First of all i want to mention cos i have read a lot of webpages how to setup cgi-bin in apache but in my chase it refuse to work responding with error:

Access forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 403


This is my httpd.conf file maybe i miss something:
Code: Select all
    #
    # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/> for detailed information.
    # In particular, see
    # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
    # for a discussion of each configuration directive.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "D:/XAMPP/apache" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "D:/XAMPP/apache/logs/foo.log".
    #
    # NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
    # instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
    # If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which Apache.exe is located
    # will be used by default.  It is recommended that you always supply
    # an explicit drive letter in absolute paths, however, to avoid
    # confusion.
    #

    # ThreadsPerChild: constant number of worker threads in the server process
    # MaxRequestsPerChild: maximum  number of requests a server process serves
    ThreadsPerChild 250
    MaxRequestsPerChild  0

    #
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    #
    # Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
    # ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive
    # at a local disk.  If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
    # httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
    #
    ServerRoot "D:/XAMPP/apache"

    #
    # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
    # ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>

    # prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (0.0.0.0)

    # Apache parses all CGI scripts for the shebang line by default.
    # This comment line, the first line of the script, consists of the symbols
    # pound (#) and exclamation (!) followed by the path of the program that
    # can execute this specific script.  For a perl script, with perl.exe in
    # the C:\Program Files\Perl directory, the shebang line should be:

       #!D:/Perl/bin/perl.exe

    # Note you _must_not_ indent the actual shebang line, and it must be the
    # first line of the file.  Of course, CGI processing must be enabled by
    # the appropriate ScriptAlias or Options ExecCGI directives for the files
    # or directory in question.
    #
    # However, Apache on Windows allows either the Unix behavior above, or can
    # use the Registry to match files by extention.  The command to execute
    # a file of this type is retrieved from the registry by the same method as
    # the Windows Explorer would use to handle double-clicking on a file.
    # These script actions can be configured from the Windows Explorer View menu,
    # 'Folder Options', and reviewing the 'File Types' tab.  Clicking the Edit
    # button allows you to modify the Actions, of which Apache 1.3 attempts to
    # perform the 'Open' Action, and failing that it will try the shebang line.
    # This behavior is subject to change in Apache release 2.0.
    #
    # Each mechanism has it's own specific security weaknesses, from the means
    # to run a program you didn't intend the website owner to invoke, and the
    # best method is a matter of great debate.
    #
    # To enable the this Windows specific behavior (and therefore -disable- the
    # equivilant Unix behavior), uncomment the following directive:
    #
    #ScriptInterpreterSource registry
    #
    # The directive above can be placed in individual <Directory> blocks or the
    # .htaccess file, with either the 'registry' (Windows behavior) or 'script'
    # (Unix behavior) option, and will override this server default option.
    #

    #
    # DefaultType: the default MIME type the server will use for a document
    # if it cannot otherwise determine one, such as from filename extensions.
    # If your server contains mostly text or HTML documents, "text/plain" is
    # a good value.  If most of your content is binary, such as applications
    # or images, you may want to use "application/octet-stream" instead to

        #
        # AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to "handlers":
        # actions unrelated to filetype. These can be either built into the server
        # or added with the Action directive (see below)

Re: Enabling cgi-bin in XAMPP?

Postby tyklazeu » 26. February 2010 21:05

Fixed by adding the right cgi-bin folder path.
XAMPP by default do C:/XAMPP/cgi-bin :D
