Subject Re: [users@httpd] php scripts run except in cgi-bin
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2005 12:52:00 GMT
(be aware, that is an obvious question)

Do you have the line
(or whatever your path to php is) at its beginning?

As well, you cannot send raw data just like a normal php script.
Just like any CGI you need to send the string
Content-type: text/html

there's another line but I cannot remember... just google about 
structure for perl cgi script, it's the same lines. wrote:
