Configuring for cgi

Postby dwlamb » 20. August 2010 22:29

I am attempting to set-up a development server for CGI applications written in C++. Apache is working okay in terms of finding the cgi-bin but rather than run the script, it serves the cgi file being called as a download.

The cgi scripts are compiled and known to be working error-free. I've looked through any documentation I can find. Much of it is based on Perl and CGI rather than C++ and CGI. What am I missing to get this to function as it should?

Does your script send the correct HTTP-Headers? If CGI is working in general you can check with this script (if you are on a linux box):
Code: Select all
echo "Content-type: text/html\n"

echo "Hello World"

If this script is displayed correct, the problem is your c++ program, otherwise it might be a configuration problem.
