Can I Add My Own CGI Scripts

This article is for cPanel Accounts. Determine where your account is with this guide.

Our cPanel shared web servers can run CGI scripts in your own "cgi-bin" directory. Scripts may be written in Perl and CGI languages.

Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts:

  1. Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings. All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx).
  2. Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)
  3. The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl
  4. Ensure the permissions are set to 755
