User configuration of the way server displays a directory index

User configuration of the way server displays a directory index

Post by Larry W. Vird » Sat, 30 Mar 1996 04:00:00

I am building some pages on a server which indicates that it is an
NCSA version 1.4.1 server.  It is my understanding that there is some
sort of mechanism, called an htaccess file, which a user could place in
his or her directory to assist the server in generating an HTML page
for a directory.

I have searched thru the NCSA WWW site for their server, but I am unable
to determine what such a file would contain.  Several examples are shown,
all of which appear to me to be exactly what I want - but all that is
said in that portion of the doc is 'Here are some examples' - without
showing what file caused the behavior.

Can anyone provide me with details as to what such a file should contain?

1. Cern Server cgi user directory configuration

Hi y'all--

I'd like to allow each user a per-user CGI directory.

"UserDir", in httpd.conf, allows each user to have an HTML
area, but how do you also grant a per user CGI area, eg:

so that users can run cgi scripts in their own directories.

Any help greatly appreciated.
