Hi to all the Apache Friends. I am having a problem with cgi-bin settings. I am running OpenSUSE 12.2 and am using XAMPP 1.8.0. I want to change the cgi-bin Directory settings in the httpd.conf folder but the moment I do that and restart the apache server, I get the error 403 access forbiden message where it was not giving this message until I made a change to the cgi-bin settings section. Here is what I changed:
# ScriptSock: On threaded servers, designate the path to the UNIX
# socket used to communicate with the CGI daemon of mod_cgid.
# "/opt/lampp/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
Allow from all
Require all denied
I have uninstalled and reinstalled fresh the XAMPP installation and tried changing this setting, and over and over this problem reoccurs. What is the problem and what am I doing wrong?
Please find the link to my httpd.conf file:
Please can anyone shed some light on this matter for me.
