Where should I put CGI scripts?

where do I put cgi scripts
CGI scripts can be placed in any directory on your account. They are typically placed into the cgi-bin directory for consolidation. Be sure to follow the instructions for the script you are uploading regarding setting permissions on the files and folders you create, as they vary from script to script. Generally CGI scripts need to have permissions set to 755.
