enabling cgi-scripts in apatche
 
following the alternative blogging thread, I installed blosxom.

I am supposed to go to /localhost/cgi-bin and see my blog post. I do
not have a cgi-bin directory in /var/www. I do have a cgi-bin in
/usr/lib/cgi-bin.


I copied /usr/lib/cgi-bin to /var/www/cgi-bin and it contains:

||blosxom htsearch pyblosxom.cgi qtest

However, I can not access it via http: http://localhost/cgi-bin/ gives
Forbidden.


permissions are the same as the other files in my /var/www dir and I
have even set them to 777 (just as a test) and no joy.

drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 2008-05-06 17:14 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 434002 2008-05-06 18:32 twwiki.html


what am I overlooking or don't know that I need to know to get
cgi-scripts working?
