  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 2
Subject:   still don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/ after using "chmod"

Response to: still don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/ after using "chmod"

I've just come across this article, (May 2003) I'm running OS X 10.2.5 and for the life of me I can't get this working. I keep getting the same error


chmod: test-cgi: Operation not permitted


I'd like to learn how to set it up so that my users can have a folder in their directory called "cgi-bin" that will execute .cgi and .pl files (just like my ISP has)


I know nothing about unix, but I've followed the tutorial every step of the way and repeated it about 5 times now and I can't get it working. Is there anybody out there still reading this?


I tried to register but got a message telling me there was an 'internal server error' so I guess even O'Reilly has problems.


Thanks,
Matt
