I'm new to the forum so I hope I am posting this in the correct area.

I'm currently trying to configure a Apache server to run CGIProxy 2.1.1
However I have run into the following problem;

I followed these instructions to the letter


After completing everything listed and installing and configuring the said files "correctly" when i try to access


All I see is the CGI script displayed in txt format.

I have named the CGI script nph-proxy.cgi and placed in the root htdocs of the server.

If anyone could help me with this I would be extremely grateful.

Your apache probably does not know that he should run that file as a cgi-script and does the default: print the content.

In your config, there should be a line like
# AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

the # means, it's not active. Delete the #, restart your apache. What that line does is tell apache "if you see a file that ends in .cgi, execute it as a script, do not print the content, wether it sits in a cgi-bin or not".

Btw, are you on windows or something else?
