Can I add my own CGI scripts?

Summary

Our Linux web servers have the capability to run CGI scripts in your own "cgi-bin" directory. Scripts may be written in Perl, Python and CGI languages.

Using CGI Scripts

Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts:

  • Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings.
  • All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx). If you need help in changing script permissions, please see our article about setting file and user permissions.
  • Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)
  • The first line of each script must read: a) #!/usr/bin/perl (for Perl) b) #!/usr/bin/python (for Python)
  • Ensure the permissions are set to 755
