Enabling CGI (cgi-bin)


#1

How do I enable a CGI-BIN directory within my FTP accessible folders?

I intend to do my own manual installation of MoveableType, using the most current version available. I do not want to use a one-click install, if that means anything.

Is standard Perl/CGI available with Dreamhost hosted domains?

You can run CGI from any location. There is no need have a specific cgi-bin but you can create one yourself if you wish for completeness. Just make the files executable as normal.

Thank you very much. I had hoped it would be fairly easy. Now for the follow-through.

Oh and yes,sorry, Perl and CGI available. If you get stuck have a look through the DreamHost wiki if you are not yet aware of the wiki, or just ask here.
