  • No cgi-files at all right?

    I was just gonna clear out a ton of old crap on the server, and just wanted to make sure that there are no CGI files in the vB installation?

    What do you mean by 'CGI files' exactly? Any script can be a CGI file, depending on the server.

        As I said this depends on the server. Any script has the potential to be a CGI file. You'll need to be more specific.

            Well then I've answered this the best I can. Any script, including all the vB scripts, can be 'CGI files' depending on the server.

                Please don't give inaccurate information. As per my previous posts any script can be CGI depending on the server.

                  CGI are two things one is Common Gateaway Interface and another CGI known as perl script files. vBulletin is coded in PHP. Don't worry about dealing with cgi-bin folder (i hate it too).

                    Steve is correct, the extension is not important. You can run PHP with a .cgi file suffix as long as you have

                    #!/usr/local/bin/php at the top

                    It depends what version you downloaded from the members area, by default it is .php

                        Unfortunately it's a lot more common than that - roughly 1-5%.

                              WOW!

                              The original poster wanted to know if vbulletin installed files in his cgi folder when he installed his copy of vbulletin.

                              I just did a fresh install of vbulletin and it didn't installed any files in my cgi folder.
