Default Problem with the implementation of tHttpdCGI


my best way of learning is by doing, so I decided to start my old server from scratch.
It´s Debian Squeeze now, and should come with nginx as server software.
Implementing nginx was my challenge yesterday. But it works fine right now. At the end I want a Server with ISPconfig 3 as frontend for the webs, reseller accounts and mail.

At the moment I´m in a dead end, cause I wanted to implement the ability of handling cgi. I used this tutorial for it: http://www.howtoforge.com/serving-cg...e-ubuntu-11.04

And I stopped here: vi /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/www.example.com.vhost

If I look into /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ i can see an link to a file called default. There is another folder /etc/nginx/sites-available there is a default file as well but I´m not shure whether I have to implement it there.
Next point on my question list is, whether I have to change
server {
location /cgi-bin {
include proxy.conf;
}; to my IP or should I leave it as it is?
And last but not least, will there be automatically a CGI folder in each web or do I have to implement it manually.

All you have to do is follow chapter 4 from http://www.howtoforge.com/serving-cg...buntu-11.04-p3 (do not use thttpd) and then use ISPConfig to enable CGI for a website.

This is also covered in the ISPConfig 3 Manual.
