SUMMARY

When you publish your web to a remote server, you may receive an error message that states: "Unable to create cgi-bin folder."

MORE INFORMATION

Many servers have a directory called "cgi-bin" that contains various scripts that can be used by all users of that server. This is often a "virtual" directory that exists in separate locations on the server. Because it is a "virtual" directory, it acts as if it is a part of each user's directory.

To work around this issue, rename the "cgi-bin" folder in your web. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. In FrontPage Explorer, click Folders on the View menu.
  2. Right-click the cgi-bin folder, and then click Rename on the shortcut menu.
  3. Rename the folder. For example, rename it scripts.
