Apache/Cgi access for /home/user's

Apache/Cgi access for /home/user's

Post by Stephen Engelkin » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I have been trying to set apache so that I can run perl script under my web pages in user's public_html direcotories with no luck.
I added the directory in the access.conf file, with options all, and did a script alias in srm.conf.  Can someone tell me the format, perhaps I enter the info incorrectly, or haven't done something I should have?  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

1. can't get cgi scripts to run in user's home directory

I wnat cgi scripts to run from all user's public_html directory

in access.conf I created this directory
# this should allow cgi scripts to be run from a user directory
<DirectoryMatch /home/*/public_html>
AllowOverride None
Options ExecCGI

It didn't work, I would get user not allowed.

However if I changed the * to my user name I could get cgi to run from
my public_html directory.  
How do I write the regular expression correctly so that all users or
perhaps all users that begin with "cis" can run cgi scripts from their
public_html directory

my access.conf file follows the default one exactly except for the above
lines added to the bottom.
