The browser still cannot find my cgi-bins. Why?


There is a big difference between these two references:

form method="post" action="cgi-bin/my-script.cgi"
form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/my-script.cgi"
The former, without a forward slash, references the cgi-bin subdirectory under your home directory and the other, which includes the forward slash, references the cgi-bin under the web server's root, which is an area controlled by the System Administrator.

Also, if you have Virtual Web Hosting, the server will always try to access the root cgi-bin, rather than yours. In that case, rename cgi-bin to something else, such as cgibin.
