.htaccess troubles...

I'm having a problem using the .htaccess file to point my local installation
of php5 (located at www.mydomain.com/horde/cgi-bin/php5.cgi). As per the
instructions I was following I added the following to the .htaccess file
(located at www.mydomain.com/horde)...

<start quote>
#PHP 5.0.5 FINAL without security wrap
Action application/x-httpd-phpx /cgi-bin/php5.cgi
AddType application/x-httpd-phpx php php3 phtml php4 php5
<end quote>

....but when I run the sysinfo.php test script
(www.mydomain.com/horde/sysinfo.php) I get the following error...

<start quote>
Not Found
The requested URL /cgi-bin/php5.cgi/horde/sysinfo.php was not found on this
server.
<end quote>

Why is it sticking /cgi-bin/php5.cgi into the URL?

Thanks,
John

John,

Simple... It wants to reference everything off of /cgi-bin/php5.cgi

Pretty much you are telling it to have that action within the .htaccess
file. You can not specify an "Action" within a .htaccess file.

The correct way would be to add:
Apache 1.3 (.htacess file)
AllowOverride Options
Options +ExecCGI
AddType application/x-httpd-phpx php php3 (...)
AddHandler application/x-httpd-phpx /cgi-bin/php5.cgi

I believe that is correct, however it might be otherwise..
