Hi John: I've noticed your questions and have time to just touch briefly on it with what I know. I personally don't know why one would have to be concerned about the location of the binary. Doesn't sound to me like your doing anything incorrect as far as Linux goes..... I do not think it's a good idea to have the rebol binary in cgi-bin, and it's really a good idea to have your own internal mapping so that your not really using the standard cgi-bin. I'm referring to using the ScriptAlias, which is in either access.conf or httpd.conf on RH 7.0 (I think - just use RH 6.0 myself). I'm sorry that I can't offer more than that, perhaps there will be more on this after the weekend. HINT: Sometimes it helps to repost under a different subject if you don't get the full edification that you are looking for. TIA Tim On Sat, Sep 15, 2001 at 09:50:17AM -0500, john wrote:
