How can I use CGI scripts on Athena?

Because CGI scripts are a potential security risk, and maintainers do not allow the general public to run scripts on these servers. So, you cannot run a CGI script from your Athena account.

Since CGI scripts require a server to run on, you'll have to find a private web server which will allow you to run your scripts.

SIPB has developed a service to allow CGI scripts to be run on their server. For more information on this service, see is not an IS&T supported service. If you have any questions about this service, please contact SIPB via the contact information given on that page.
