web server configuration on win95
Posted on 1997-07-23
I have downloaded MS personal web server to my win95 pc, first how to make the CGI work? i have create the form in html and write perl scripts and download perl library for that form(in fact i just download from CGI tutorial site with minimal changes), and also I go thru my computer->hard drive C->www directory->cgi-bin directory and change its sharing and web-sharing to readable and scripts executable. but broswer still reports HTTpd 1.0 500 server error. I think above sharing way maynot work, but all the
CGI tutorial said use 'chmod 755.." command to make it work, well this is for unix, not for win95 on a PC.
second, i am worrying about security. when i use the web server administration to set stuffs it goes thru all my hard disk's directory, so how to prevent outside users do the same thing? I mean if they put some executable command thru www browsing then it's possible for them work with my whole hard drive.(for example, if they can activate the server administrator?)
