Adding Generic CGI Scripts


Owners of our hosting account can use simple CGI wizards to enhance their sites with the following scripts:

All CGI scripts for a particular site are stored in the cgi-bin directory, unless specified otherwise. If you accidentally delete any files in the cgi-bin directory, you can recover them by going to the Web Options page and clicking the Restore to default link. Your existing files remain untouched, so you will not lose your changes. To get rid of undesirable changes in the script files, delete these files and then click the Restore to default link on the Web Options page. Also, use the Restore to default link to fix your temporary index page to default.
See the Contents of Your Home Directory chapter of this manual for more information on the files and catalogues not to be deleted.
