Can I add my own CGI scripts?

 Our LINUX web servers have the capability to run CGI scripts in your own 'cgi-bin' directory. Scripts may be written in Perl and CGI languages. Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts:

  • Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings.
  • All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx).

 

If you need help in changing script permissions, please see the following:

  • Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)
  • The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl
  • Ensure the permissions are set to 755
