Is there any problem to have non-cgi files (html templates, images...) in a cgi-bin folder? I have put all the postcard files in a cgi-bin folder to have all the files together (under a "cgi-bin/postcard/" folder) and to ease configuration.

P.S.: I installed ultimate bulletin board (www.infopop.com) and it had non-cgi files in a non-cgi folder.


Thanks for your help.

The server won't complain (at least it shouldn't :). You may have a minor security risk (those files may be publicly available if you're not careful; however it seems that wouldn't be a problem in that case).

Most programs will put them in a separate directory mostly for organization, and planning for flexibility (later you could have several different sets of templates, using the same code).
