12.5  Enabling a cgi directory for each user

In order to give each user their own cgi-bin directory, you can use a <Directory> directive to make a particular subdirectory of a user’s home directory cgi-enabled.

<Directory /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin/>
Options ExecCGI
SetHandler cgi-script
</Directory>

Then, presuming that UserDir is set to public_html, a cgi program example.cgi could be loaded from that directory as:

http://example.com/~rbowen/cgi-bin/example.cgi
