Another question lead me to this one. I have never used apache on OSX so please forgive my lack of experience with this issue.
How do you access cgi scripts from the browser if the CGI-Executables directory is above the www-root folder? I don't want to use something
../. I tried browsing to http://localhost/cgi-bin/ but it gave an error. It said permission denied.
How do you configure these settings? Also can /~user-name directory aliases run cgi-scripts?
