Cgi bin


what permissions does the cgi_bin folder need to be?


Use 750 and it’s cgi-bin. It’s also just a folder, nothing special as far as the server configs are concerned.


750? If I do that I just get 403 error. I thought it was 755…

Save $96 dollars when you sign up! -> 96DISCOUNT :wink:


I got it working. I had it already set up for owner read, write, execute. my problem was an extra T in the cgi file itself.



Oh, guess you do need 755. Must be a CGI Wrapper installed. Part of the CGI Wrapper is to check permissions.

750 is more secure since the web server instances run under your user handle. But I think the CGI Wrapper just verifies 755. /shrug
