Cgi.bin


#1

I need to install an irc applet so I can access a support channel that it irc based.

Now the one I have downloaded to use is here:
http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net/download/

It seem they are supporting Dreamhost

But I can’t find the usr/Bin directory specified ?? is CGI supported or not?

Can anybody suggest another irc client that will run on Dreamhost

Thanks.

You can run CGI from anywhere. You do not need a specific ‘cgi-bin’ but for ease of use just create one where you want it. See here for more CGI information.

I am not so sure about using IRC though. Run the link by DreamHost first.

I think he’s just talking about an IRC client.

To the OP, if that’s the case, why not just install one on your PC? Or heck, use Trillian (www.trillian.cc) IM client. It connects to all IM networks AND it has an IRC client built in. I use the IRC myself within it from time to time, works really well.
