I have created a virtual host with following configuration


#Default Host

<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
ServerName Linux
DirectoryIndex index.html

#My domain

DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
ServerName www.mysite.com
DirectoryIndex index.html

<Files results>
ForceType application/x-httpd-cgi

<Directory "/var/www/mysite">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
AllowOverride None
Order allow, deny
Allow from all


I have created a subdirectory that I named "result" under DocumentRoot directory mysite and placed a cgi file called results but with no .cgi extension but ForceType should take care of it.

but when I type URL www.mysite.com/result/results

it doesnt run the file as cgi script but a window appears telling me that
"you have chosen to open results which is a: application/x-httpd-cgi from: http://www.mysite.com
and asking me to open with or save to disk.

I am wondering why it is doing this instead of running it.

it runs when I put results in the main directory and typed

I also added the following line it maynot be necesary but I still added

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

I will appreciate if anybody could help me in this
