Im trying to host my own webpage from my computer using apache on linux and I have a question about cgi-bin. Can I create a cgi-bin anywhere in my /httpd dir? because the current one is a directory below the root directory (index.hmtl) of my current page so to link to it i would need to go backwards. I was thinking about putting in the full path but it didnt work for images so I doubt it would work for cgi. any ideas?

if you're using apache it will have set a symbolic link. from the web it will show as but for you via ftp or browse it'll show as below your httpd

Configuration files are good, and you should read them.

In your configuration file you'll find a section for the mod_alias module. This module sets up aliases for your webserver. You'll find several including cgi-bin. Modify to your likings.

ScriptAlias /Displayed/ "C:/Example/"

AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
is the same location as:
