I did some tests and it was quite esy to run a shell script as a .cgi
under thttpd. These are the steps I had to follow:
- make sure your script starts with "#!/bin/sh", so it can be
identified as a shell script that could be run directly;
- make sure your script has a name ending in ".cgi", this is a
requirement from the thttpd configuration under Unslung;
- put your script under /home/httpd/html, or better, under
/home/httpd/html/Management, together with the other cgi programs;
- make sure the permissions for the script are 755 (-rwxr-xr-x), so do
not forget to "chmod 755 your.cgi".
For a quick test, you can copy the following script, paste it into an
editor and save it as /home/httpd/html/Management/test.cgi. It is
actually the test-cgi script from the default Apache distribution, but
it runs perfectly under thttpd. Save it as test.cgi, adjust its
permissions ("chmod 755 test.cgi") then point your browser to
# disable filename globbing
