Newbie here ... please be kind Smile

Apache 2.4.18 / Ubuntu

I'm trying to do some cgi testing/learning on my local machine. So I have added to my serve-cgi-bin.conf file:

<Directory "/home/.CUT./html/my-cgi-bin/">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Require all granted

Which lets me run cgi stuff in my local space. But, notice I needed to change the name of the directory from "cgi-bin" to "my-cgi-bin" to avoid a conflict with the default /usr/lib/cgi-bin.

I'm worried (needlessly?) that as I write some things I'll need to change the locations of the calls back to cgi-bin if I decide to upload this to my remote server.

I'm sure there is a simple solution?

Well, unless you have ScriptAlias in global scope and that points to /usr/lib/cgi-bin there should be no need to worry about this.

Even if it does I think you can override it with a ScriptAlias in the vhost scope.
