Joomla Install in cgi-bin mode

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-30
Hi there,

I'm trying to make a clean joomla install in a new acquire hosting server... The problem is that I was just told that php files only run under cgi-bin folder.

Is it possible to make joomla work this way? How can I do this??

Please help anyone

Hi there, thanks for the reply uetian1707... I've read those articles but my question remains...

I already have an hosting service... And I know It's running php in cgi mode... I also know that php files if located in  'public_html' won't run! They'll only work in cgi-bin...

I just don't know how to setup the files... Will I have to put only the php files in cgi-bin??
