    I have a problem in that I can't seem to get a cgi script to work.

    They all worked perfectly on my other server but i get either a 403 server error or a 500 server error.

    If I uncomment the line

    # AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

    in

    /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf

    I get the 500 error and if the line is commented out I get the 403 error.

    I am unsure as to what the problem could be.

    I have used the perfect setup on Mandrake 10.2
    :confused:

    The most common reason for 403 on a cgi script is it's not executable. Make sure the file is modded at least 755 and try that again.

    If that doesn't fix it, check the web server's error log - it's usually pretty good at giving clues :)

    Hope this helps

    Oh - maybe also check that "Options ExecCGI" or similar is set in the virtualhost directive. I guess this should be there if you've ticked the 'cgi' box in the web site 'basis' tab though.

    I have since reinstalled ISP Config so the site is now at web1

    ls -la /home/www/web1/web/domainname_checker/
    produces:

    drwxr-xr-x 2 web1_ web1 4096 Nov 21 19:54 ./
    drwxrwxr-x 6 web1_ web1 4096 Nov 21 20:31 ../

    When I try to run the script I get a 500 error page

    Is it because the file is not in the cgi bin and if so can I get the file to run anywhere?

    Yes, you have to put the file into cgi-bin!

    In that case does anybody know of a good php based site search script.

    Can't you use the script if it's in cgi-bin?

    You can search www.hotscripts.com for PHP search engines. PHPDig is a good one, but maybe there are better ones...
