Re: logout and cosign.cgi question

We install logout in a cgi-bin directory using a ScriptAlias -- so it doesn't need an extension. We install the login cgi in DocumentRoot with ExecCGI turned on -- so we use the .cgi extension there. Lot's of our users already knew that appending "/cgi-bin/logout" to the end of a url would cause logout to happen, so we wanted to preserve that behavior.

There's not much more to it than that. Do you think it would make more sense to move the logout cgi into DocumentRoot/logout/index.cgi or similar? So a ScriptAlias isn't needed?

Hi all,

just a simple question, why was logout not called logout.cgi, is it because you have them in the same directory ( ie / ) on the web server and you have specified .cgi as a directory index and it will get confused? If so why not use /logout with the logout.cgi in there??
