    you really want to make this guy freak, damn...

    BY DEFAULT, vBulletin does not need to bee located in your cgi-bin directory, as it is a PHP based script... even if your host have installed PHP as a module, you can install vBulletin in its own directory without any cgi-related action...

    this client ask this because he had piracy on his own cgi-based website ... guys, if you can't answer correctly, don't answer at all... this is not a feud here.

    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.

    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

    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).

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

    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.
