Hello, I am hopeing someone here can help me. I am trying to create my own CPanel Theme. I would like to run a CGI script so I can addin some of my custom billing stuff for each client. I cannot get the cgi script to work. I Have

www.xxxxx.com:2082/frontend/MYTHEME/index.cgi

I know that CPanel does not run on apache so is this possible? I have saw someone run a php script in these directories so thats why im thinking it is possible.

Please help,

Thanks
Ryan

that halfway works!

Hello, Thanks for the help. That will work if I just use a basic cgi script. When I addin the code to connect to my mySQL database i get a LW/SIMPLE.pm error? Has anyone successfully integrated a cgi/perl script into cPanel before?

Thanks,
Ryan

Sorry, I answered too fast. You can certainly run CGI and PHP scripts from inside Cpanel. Create a directory in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty for your program and store your files there. Chmod the directory and all CGI scripts 0755. You can run it from a user's cpanel this way:

&a href=&/3rdparty/yourdirectory/index.cgi&&Billing&/a&

I don't know what could be wrong with LW/SIMPLE.pm, I use DBI to connect to the MySQL database and it works OK.

Not Working

When I chmoded my theme directory and script. I did exactly what you showed told me and for some reason when I click on the link it just displays the code of the cgi script. Is there something I need to do to make it work on my server?

Please help,
Thanks,
Ryan
