1. Create a directory called cgi-bin in each public_html 
2. Add the following to your httpd.conf file.

<Directory /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin> 
# assumes that all home dirs are in /home
Options ExecCGI 
SetHandler cgi-script 

Any executable file (regardless of filename extension) placed in a cgi-bin
directory can be invoked as a cgi script like this
