Can I use 3rd Party CGI scripts?

This article explains the process for using third party CGI scripts on a Unix hosting account.

This article applies to Unix Shared Hosting, Unix Reseller accounts and Unix Dedicated Servers.

If you have a custom CGI script that you wish to use, simply upload it using FTP to your hosting account. CGI scripts may be placed in any directory within your hosting account, although a default cgi-bin directory is created for convenience.

Scripts must have an extension of .cgi or .pl. Ensure that your FTP program uploads the file in ASCII mode and be sure to set the correct file permissions using the chmod command from within your FTP client.
