Q: How does AlterHosting provide for CGI services?

A: A /cgi-bin/ is available to run any CGI programs written in Perl or C. It is not necessary to check with AlterHosting when uploading a CGI to the server. Your /cgi-bin/ is available to run most scripts, so long as the script is not malicious to the machine, bandwidth, users, or other as determined by AlterHosting administrators. In actuality, AlterHosting allows customers to run CGIs in any directory, but we recommend that customers designate one particular directory (such as the default /cgi-bin/) and maintain the proper executable permissions on it. All other directories should remain non-executable. If you are not experienced at changing permissions, simply use the default configuration and your directories will be set up correctly.

AlterHosting also supports scripting tools and languages such as Perl, Python, PHP etc.

MySQL is used for database connectivity and includes a more GUI environment as well as an HTML-like tag language.

Q: Where can I find path information for my CGI?

A: Try the following paths:

  1. /home/httpd/vhosts/yourdomainname.com/cgi-bin/file
  2. http://www.yourdomainname.com/cgi-bin/file
