Subject CGI for User homes
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2002 18:59:37 GMT
For the life of me I don't understand what method I should use to allow 
all our NIS users to execute cgi scripts (.cgi & .pl) from their www 
space (~username/www/cgi-bin/).

I've used this methods so far:


<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
     UserDir www

<Directory /home/*/www/cgi-bin>
     Options ExecCGI
     SetHandler cgi-script


ScriptAliasMatch ^/~([^/]*)/cgi-bin(.*) /home/$1/cgi-bin/$2
ScriptLog "|/opt/local/apache1.3.24/bin/rotatelogs 

     # "/opt/local/apache1.3.24/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever 
your ScriptAliased
     # CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
     #<Directory "/opt/local/apache1.3.24/cgi-bin">
     <Directory "/home/$1/cgi-bin/$2">
         AllowOverride All
         Options None
         Order allow,deny
         Allow from all

# End of aliases.

I'm getting either 404s or 403s. If I run the scripts from the 
DocumentRoot /home/admin/www/cgi-bin they run fine, so far...

What am I doing wrong?

Tx, Ben
