i'm trying to set up a web server. it will be used by myself and a select group of people i have met online.

easy enough with linux since linux is a server to begin with...

now that i have it set up i want to do a few things for security/fun.....

i have created subdirectories in the cgi-bin directory corresponding to each user's account

the directories have been 'chown'ed to [username]:superuser and 'chmod'ed to 775
they have also been linked to the user's public_html directory as a soft link named cgi-bin
Code:
(results of ls -l in ~dragonrider/public_html)
lrwxrwxrwx   1 dragonrider users       29 2005-05-26 11:21 cgi-bin -> /var/www/cgi-bin/dragonrider//
drwxr-xr-x   4 dragonrider users      168 2005-05-05 07:46 htdocs/
drwxr-xr-x   2 dragonrider users      496 2005-02-14 09:42 images/
-rw-r--r--   1 dragonrider users     2504 2005-05-05 09:32 index.html
i want users to be able to run CGI scripts in this fashion but it's not working.

Apache/1.3.33 Server at DarkStar1.DarkStar.net Port 80
is there some setting i need to change? or should i do this in another way? any help would be appreciated.....


most likely i will have more questions in the future.......
