Can I add my own CGI scripts?


Our LINUX web servers have the capability to run CGI scripts in your own 'cgi-bin' directory. Scripts may be written in Perl and CGI languages. Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts: 

- Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings. 
- All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx). 

If you need help in changing script permissions, please see the following: 
- Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode) 
- The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl 
- Ensure the permissions are set to 755
