I'm no Apache expert ...
Checking a system at work I see that in the site config we have :
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
Options ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Allow from all
In the main config there is also a statement :
DirectoryIndex index.html index.cgi index.pl index.php index.xhtml
I think that just tells Apache what files to look for when the user
just gives a directory address.
