Definition of CGI bin in English:
A server directory where CGI programs are stored.
- In one place it tells you that cgi files can go in any folder that suits; in another, less obvious place, it tells you they may only be placed in cgi-bin.
- Remember that cgi scripts are normally executed from cgi-bin rather than html or htdocs.
- To set up your cgi-bin folder, click on ‘CGI Programs’ in the ‘CGI directory aliases’ row.
