Next: GN HTTP server Up: 3.5.1 Additional installation for Previous: CERN httpd v3.0

NCSA httpd v1.3 or v1.4; Apache httpd v0.8.8

Requires a ScriptAlias and an Alias entry in conf/srm.conf, e.g.:

       ScriptAlias /Harvest/cgi-bin/ Your-HARVEST_HOME/cgi-bin/
       Alias /Harvest/ Your-HARVEST_HOME/

WARNING: The ScriptAlias entry must appear before the Alias entry.

Alternatively, you can substitute the ScriptAlias line with the following line using AddType to identify CGI programs by filename extension. e.g.:

       AddType application/x-httpd-cgi .cgi

Reportedly, the Apache v0.8.8 HTTP server requires this AddType line in addition to the ScriptAlias and Alias lines. If you are running the HTTP server in standalone mode, it may be necessary to send it a HUP signal so that the server re-reads its configuration files.
