What is a CGI bin directory?


A CGI bin directory is a special directory on the server where CGI scripts are allowed to be executed. Most servers are configured to only allow CGI scripts to be executed from one location, in order to minimize security holes. Poorly written scripts can wreak havoc on a server if allowed to run unchecked - most system admins will want to verify that the script is not doing anything malicious before letting you run it.
