    Hi, I have been asking lots of people this question and i cant seem to find the answer!

    I keep getting the error:

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/ on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.***.***********.co.uk Port 80

    Come up when i try to access or look at my cgi-bin.

    I have changed all the cgi-bin permissions to 755 and this still does not make a difference.
    Im afraid i dont know much about hosting, im rather new to it all :P

    Although i went on one website and it said the reason is becasue i dont have a /index.htm file.
    Somewhere else said your host may not have provided a cgi-bin directory (or something, i cant remember!)
    Could it be that I havent been provided with a cgi-bin? This would confuse me because I can get into it via File Manager and The 'CGI Center' scripts work!

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    "Setup a checkout page. If you have a secure server, and CGI access, the form action on this page should point at it. If you are accepting credit card numbers, a secure server really should be used. If you have CGI access, place the file checkout.pl into your cgi-bin directory, and point the FORM ACTION from this checkout page to it."

    Thats wot it said in the tutorial! :)
