Hi,

Could someone please explain to me how I would go about giving access to cgi for different domains on a multi-hosting BSDI unix machine running Apache.

Actually, the problem is:  alhough I can point them to the /usr/var/www/cgi-bin directory, and the scripts will run fine, if I try to set up each individual domain with their own cgi-bin directory or cgi script files within their own directory, the script will not run.
I am specificaly trying to get the autocart software to run (www.autocart.com), unfortunately, their technicians could not help me out.

Please give me a hand.

There are two ways to fix this.
1. make all files with extention .cgi executable as cgi-bins.
This is done by editing the server config file.  There is a section called add type; there should be an entry for cgi's that just needs to be uncommented.  if not it should look like this:
AddType application/x-httpd-cgi cgi

2. Give them each there own cgi directory.  In the configuration file where the virual host are defined put in a script alias for each of the domains. ex.
<VirtualHost www.experts-exchange.com>
...(stuff already here)
script alias /cgi-bin/ /actual/path/
</VirtualHost>
