I have all that stuff in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
Options ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Allow from all
the Alias part of the scriptalias works just fine. Just not getting the
ExecCGI. I even tried turning on AddHandler but it did not help.
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
I'm really not sure what i'm doing. I'm just confused as to why the default
config is not working, must be that unstable thing. But I know I have had
this problem before with unstable, just can't remember what I did to fix it.
And yes I have read the apache conf file, many times.
