Yikes! Don't do that. Please. There's been a discussion earlier about this earlier... Because cgi-bin is "open to the outside world", multiple requests like could bring the server down. And now the ISPs would *really* be rolling their eyes. You could more safely place it someplace like /home/mydomain/bin. I belong to a professional organization that is mostly sysadmins for ISPs and telcos and they are uniformly opposed to this. One of the local ISPs the I know of - that doesn't belong - *does* allow this and they are gonna be sorry! MTCW Tim
