Dear Experts,

I would like to set permission right to all linux directory for executing all
CGI/perl file such as example.cgi . Why my all  php script I can run it at
all directory ?  That must be set for permission by my hosting system adminstrator
in httpd.conf file, Right ?
 Now how to do the same for perl script file as php script which is  able to run at
all my linux directory ?
Now I'm just  able to run cgi/perl file at my public_html /cgi-bin/  only, Why ?
 The  issue is not related to chmod 755 that can not solve it since I tried it before and not
working.
Is it related to httpd.conf or alias setting ? please advise

Now if I run cig/perl script at other than /cgi-bin directory it will report error
such as follows

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /data/pl/example.cgi on this server.


Please advise

Duncan

Example.cgi
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";
use strict;
use warnings;

print "hi NAME\n";

This is dependent upon how the Apache server is set up. For security reasons, many installations only allow you to run CGI scripts from a specified directory. Your best bet is to contact your hosting provider and see if they can change the settings. I don't know if they will do it, but it can't hurt to ask.

Cheers,

Mike
