    I'd like a directory like cgi-sys except that it's password-protected - but I can't seem to create a NON-password-protected directory like that.

    First, I made a directory that appears to be identical in every respect
    Code:
    mkdir /usr/local/cpanel/user/ 
    chmod 755 /usr/local/cpanel/user/
    chown root.wheel /usr/local/cpanel/user
    cp /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/* /usr/local/cpanel/user/
    chmod 755 /usr/local/cpanel/user/*
    chown root.wheel /usr/local/cpanel/user/*
    
    Then I added this line to httpd.conf
    Code:
    ScriptAlias /user/ /usr/local/cpanel/user/
    and I restarted Apache

    It looks to me like there is no difference at all between
    Code:
    http://domain.name/cgi-sys/hello_world.cgi 
    and
    Code:
    http://domain.name/user/hello_world.cgi
    but the cgi-sys URL works right, and the user URL gives a 500 error - and it does NOT appear in the error log.

    Even if you only have a partial answer to this one, I'd appreciate a pointer so that I could RTFM.
