    Hi - when I load files into www.xxxxxxxxx.com/cgi-bin - I cannot browse the cgi-directory.

    However, if I create a subdirectory and put a cgi-bin - www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/test/cgi-bin within the folder to run cgi scripts, it is possible to browse the files in there unless I put in an .htaccess file or an index.html

    Is this how the feature always worked? I had thought a new cgi-bin folder anywhere on my site would run as the main one and not be browsable? Can you reassure me, please, in case this is a security issue!
