    can i make the web_root behave like a cgi-bin?

    hey there,
    i need to be able to server scripts from the web_root folder of my debian server with apache. Can this be done ? i am behind a router at work that messes with my ability to get images to the outside from a domain path
    img src = "" will not work here
    but src = 'image.jpg' will work

    so i need scripts to run from web_root. any reason not to do this? how would i ? script alias? thanks.

    I found this doc with a quick Google search (keywords: apache scriptalias) seems like what you want but i would not use .htaccess unless you cant access the httpd.conf file. Put it inside a <Directory></Directory> directive.

    Hey, thats what i had to do,
    got php scripts to work from web_root,
    but not python
    thats ok though.
    if i can do it in php i would rather do it that way anyway.
