All VPOP accounts have the ability to create and execute their
own CGI programs. There are a few things you should know about our
system before you begin your artistry so that all goes well.
First, you'll want to place you CGI scripts in a directory called
"cgibin", not "cgi-bin" (notice the missing hyphen). The "cgi-bin"
directory is where all of our pre-formatted scripts live and so by
default, all references to "cgi-bin" point to our root CGI directory.
Second, you'll need to make your scripts executeable before
they will run when requested from the Web. In order to do this,
you'll need to find the place in your FTP lcient which allows you to
change file permissions. You'll want the eqivalent of the
chmod +x yourfile.cgi OR
Set file as executable by the USER, GROUP and WORLD. OR
Set permissions as "755".
