I’ve been using PHP and am now trying to use some Perl CGI scripts. I’ve uploaded them in ASCII mode, set the permissions properly, and they have a proper extension, yet when I try to load them up all I see is the source code in the browser.
I did see this: “If scripts aren’t being run from the web, but are just showing their source code instead, you may have CGI turned off for that domain!To turn it on, simply go to the Domains > Manage section of our web panel and click the  link to the right of the “http” service for the domain you’re having trouble with!” at https://panel.dreamhost.com/kbase/index.cgi?area=342
But once I go there the only things I see about CGI are the options for running PHP as CGI and what user the CGI should run as.
Anyone have any ideas?
