ExecCGI

I can't get <!--#exec cgi=" ..."--> to do anything except give an error. It works with the
ExecCGI
option in the .htaccess file on another host. Is this because ExecCGI is turned off by plusnet, or am I missing something obvious?

Re: ExecCGI

Are you trying to do this on your normal webspace?

Re: ExecCGI

I was hoping that I would be able to get it to work from my homepages.plus.net htdocs directory, but it doesn't work there. I tried getting it to work in my ccgi space. I can get <!--#include file=" . . . "--> to work in my ccgi space but not #exec cgi. The .htaccess file is
AddType text/html .html
AddHandler server-parsed .html
Options Includes ExecCGI FollowSymlinks
I was hoping to serve a dynamic page as the index.html file in my homepages.plus.net space using a cgi-bin script on ccgi.

Re: ExecCGI

I had a look at what's on offer with PAYH and, if I am not mistaken, there is no shell access. What's the good of that? I'm going to have to look elsewhere.

Re: ExecCGI

Why do you need shell access? You can edit files from within the file manager on PAYH if that was your concern.
I think you'll find many hosting services do not have shell access.
