Re: what is the cgi-bin?
CGI is an acronym...
(it means Common Gateway Interface).
The CGI bin is a folder on your computer where CGI programs live.
CGI is a specification that determins how webservers and clients echange information.
in the day s before script languages like PHP, ASP or Perl people had to write programs, (I.e. real compiled prorgams) with languages such as C to interperate information sent from the client,
the CGI bin is a special folder where the webserver is allowed to execute programs,
normally the webserver is not allowed to execute programs.
