  • The twiki/bin directory of TWiki must be set as a cgi-bin directory. Add /home/httpd/twiki/bin to /etc/httpd/conf/access.conf with only ExecCGI option.
  • The twiki/pub directory of TWiki must be set so that it is visible as a URL. Add /home/httpd/twiki to /etc/httpd/conf/access.conf with normal access options (copy from /home/httpd/html).
  • Now add ScriptAlias for /twiki/bin and Alias for /twiki to /etc/httpd/conf/srm-conf . Example:
    ScriptAlias /twiki/bin/ /home/httpd/twiki/bin/
    Alias /twiki/ /home/httpd/twiki/
    Note: The ScriptAlias must come before the Alias in Apache, otherwise it will fail to correctly set up /twiki/bin/ , due to the fact that it sees that as being just another subdirectory of the /twiki/ alias.

  • The twiki/bin directory of TWiki must be set as a cgi-bin directory. Add /home/httpd/twiki/bin to file /etc/httpd/conf/http.conf with only ExecCGI option.
  • The twiki/pub directory of TWiki must be set so that it is visible as a URL. Add /home/httpd/twiki to file http.conf with normal access options (copy from /home/httpd/html ).
  • Now add ScriptAlias for /twiki/bin and Alias for /twiki to file http.conf .
    Note: The ScriptAlias must come before the Alias in Apache, otherwise it will fail to correctly set up /twiki/bin/ , due to the fact that it sees that as being just another subdirectory of the /twiki/ alias.
  • Here are example http.conf entries:
     ScriptAlias /twiki/bin/ "/home/httpd/twiki/bin/"
     Alias /twiki/ "/home/httpd/twiki/pub/"
     <Directory "/home/httpd/twiki/bin">
    	 Options +ExecCGI
    	 SetHandler cgi-script
    	 Allow from all
     </Directory>
     <Directory "/home/httpd/twiki/pub">
    	 Options FollowSymLinks +Includes
    	 AllowOverride None
    	 Allow from all
     </Directory>
 
  • Restart Apache by /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S85httpd restart .
  • Test if the twiki/bin directory is cgi-enabled:
    • Enter the URL of that directory into your browser ( http://your.domain.com/twiki/bin ). It is not set correctly as cgi-bin in case you get something like "Index of /twiki/bin" . It is OK if you get a message like "Forbidden. You don't have permission to access /twiki/bin/ on this server."
