I am back again with yet another tutorial on how to run cgi scripts in IBM IHS [HTTP Server]
We have our latest tutorial on how to run perl script in Apache (Ubuntu, Red Hat or CentOS), take a look.
1)First of all as i always say, take backup of HTTPD.CONF
2)Now open the httpd.conf with you favorite editor.Mine is notepad ++ of course.
3)Find this entry LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so and uncomment it if it is commented otherwise leave that.
<Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI </Directory>
And add +ExecCGI as i have added above.
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "IHS_INSTALLED_PATH/cgi-bin/"
or ADD this entry if it is not existing, Here I am giving alias name as /cgi-bin/ itself if you want you can change it accordingly.
6)Then add one more directive
<Directory "IHS_INSTALLED_PATH/cgi-bin/"> AllowOverride None Options None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
7)Then add AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
8)Last but not least recycle the IHS 🙂
Put the cgi or perl scripts in the cgi-bin directory and access it using URL similar to https://YOURHOST/cgi-bin/yourscript.cgi
Hope this helps..
