Simple CGI wrapper
Posted by David, Last modified by Ashley L on 19 November 2019 05:10 PM

This feature allows you to run CGI scripts from your /scgi-bin/ directory using your uid (user) to run the script. This means that you, or your web pages can run cgi scripts if they are placed in the /scgi-bin/ directory.

Here are the following steps:

  1. To access the CGI Center, click on the icon above the words "CGI Center" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To enable the wrapper, click on the words "Simple CGI Wrapper"
  3. Place any scripts in /home/username/public_html/scgi-bin that you wish to be able to access from the web (except /username/ will be your cPanel username)

Troubleshooting: Make sure that the scripts you have placed in /scgi-bin/ have the correct permissions and filenames to be run properly on your system.
