Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 3 Developer's Guide

Specifying CGI File Extensions

You can configure CGI programs to have the file extensions .cgi, .exe, or .bat. The programs can be located in any directory in or under the document root directory of the virtual server.

By default, the file extensions for CGI programs are .cgi, .exe, and .bat. However, you can change which extensions indicate CGI programs by the following line in the MIME types file:

type=magnus-internal/cgi exts=cgi,exe,bat

Restart the server after editing mime.types.

When the server is enabled to treat all files with an appropriate extensions as CGI programs, the obj.conf file contains the following Service directive:

Service fn="send-cgi" type="magnus-internal/cgi"
