User-authored scripts are supported for all DCANet customers with Unix-hosted web sites. Any user can write his or her own scripts and place and use them on-line without intervention by any DCANet staff member.

There are many online resources from which you may download free scripts. A popular source for scripts is the CGI Resource Index. (Note that this link is provided as a service to our customers but DCANet does not support these scripts or take any responsibility for the consequences of their use).

There are two methods available to run your own scripts on DCANet's Unix-hosted websites: CGIWrap and suExec. Both offer a secure method of running your scripts. suEXEC is generally considered easier to deploy. Note: CGIWrap is the defualt unless you have FP extensions installed. Learn more:

  • On UNIX, Perl is version 5.005 and is /usr/bin/perl.
  • PHP versions 3, 4, and 5 are supported. Files that are named with a .php3 extension are processed with version 3.0.18, files with just a .php extension are processed with version 4.0.6. Versions 4.2.3 and 5.1.1 must be run as CGIs, and are located at /local/bin/php and /local/bin/php5 respectively. For information on configuring your DCANet-hosted website to use PHP version 4.2.3 or 5.1.1 with the .php file extension, please contact Technical Support
  • Python is version 1.5.2 and is /usr/contrib/bin/python
  • Server parsed HTML can be enabled by naming your files with a .shtml extension
  • Sendmail is located at /usr/sbin/sendmail
