Here's what I did (for username andy):


<Directory "/Users/andy/Sites/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
Allow from all


AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
<DirectoryMatch "^/Users/andy/Sites/?.*/cgi-bin/">
Options +ExecCGI -Indexes
SetHandler cgi-script


This turns on CGI executables (files with .cgi or .pl extensions) only in directories called 'cgi-bin' that live under andy's Sites folder (or subfolders thereof). It also turns of directory indexing (ie. listings) for these directories - good practice for hiding your cgi scripts from prying eyes.

Upon following your example in changing the users.conf file and running apachectl configtest I received this syntax error:
Syntax error on line 11 of /private/etc/httpd/users/users.conf:
<DirectoryMatch not allowed here

My question is, where is the proper place to put the <DirectoryMatch?
also it did not like the <pre>
