Installing CGI Proxy

I’m trying to install that…CGIProxy.

I’ve installed php stuff before, but never CGI stuff. The installation notes say nothing. I wanted to do an automated install at: http://install.xav.com/?p=cgiproxy but it won’t find the Perl and has trouble with my directory being http://www.formerfatboys.com/formerfatboys.com. The cgi script is technically uploaded at http://www.formerfatboys.com/proxy/nph-proxy.cgi, but I haven’t set anything up and if you access that nothing happens. How do i figure out how to install this?

You’re better off just copying the nph-proxy.cgi manually to some directory (don’t forget chmod’ing the file and the directory to 755).

I was able to install and run CGIProxy. But without SSL support.
Has anyone tried to make it work WITH SSL support???

I am on a shared hosting, and have no shell access.

Yes… if you mean you wish to be able to view HTTPS web sites when running from an HTTP installation.

Find: $OVERRIDE_SECURITY
and set it to:
$OVERRIDE_SECURITY= 1 ;

Thank you. That works… Understanding that it’s still HTTP into the site itself…
