How to make wakaba running in cgi-bin and other directories (5)

1 Name: gash 2005-09-07 07:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

Hi,
how is it possible to run the wakaba-core in the cgi-bin and the rest (the site itself) in another directory (outside the cgi-bin)

i got many problems doing this... some i got fixed myself, some not...
can someone tell me how to 'run' html sites insite the cgi-bin or how to make it 100% compatible with such a 'half-side'-cgi >_>

thanks for your helps o,o

It requires quite a bit of hacking. There's a function named expand_path() or something similar in wakautils.pl that you could hack to make it change all paths to point to some other directory, and you could put in a chdir "/whatever/directory" at the top of wakaba.pl, and...

Or you could yell at your admin to stop being a retard and let you run your CGI scripts where you want them.

Some hosts still have it there but don't require you to use it. (cough*hosts that use crap like cpanel*cough)

I imagine any host that requires you to use it is a free host. If it isn't, I suggest you get a different host.
