Installing htmlarea to cgi-bin


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Installing htmlarea to cgi-bin Can't Post

I had a question out of curiosity.

Is there any reason why the installation directions on the documentation page suggest not installing htmlarea under the cgi-bin page? Security issues?

Some of the plugins have perl backends (which traditionally would require they are in cgi-bin), I guess some of those perl backends may require configuration to maker them "secure". That said some of the plugins have php backends, which will work fine outside cgi-bin, so I think the point is moot.

Anyway, very little of htmlArea is server-side (all server side code is in plugins, the core is entirely clientside), so my advice would be, just put it wherever works for you.
