I know this is off-topic, so if anyone can point me to a more appropriate
place, I shall take the question there. But I guess a number of you would
run this web server, so might be able to shed some light on this.
Anyway, I'm trying to set up a web server running on the NCSA httpd, and
am having a strange problem with my CGI scripts.
I'm using numerous CGI scripts, scattered throughout my document tree, so
am using a .cgi extension to identify them.
I have uncommented the line in the srm.conf file which reads:
AddType application/x-httpd-cgi .cgi
in order to enable the filename extension recognition, and altered my Options
line in access.conf, in the section for my documents, to read
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
Everything works well for a while (a number of days), and then suddenly
whenever I attempt to view a page created by one of my CGI files, instead
of displaying the page, it attempts to FTP it to my client machine.
Sending a SIGHUP to the server cures the problem.
Can anyone throw any light on this at all? I'm running Solaris 2.5 on both
the client and server, which are seperate boxes.
Thanx in advance
