The mapserv binairy is called 'mapserv'. Copy it to the cgi-bin dir.
Find the dir with "find / -name 'cgi-bin'".
Dont forget to restart apache.

> Hi All
> Installed Apache 1.3.29 on i686 Fedora Core 1. Works 100%. Standard installation.
> Installing MapServer as per instructions @ URL http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/doc40/unix-install-howto.html#compiling
> Compiled fine. As per info
> A simple test is to try and run it:
> [user at host mapserver]$ ./mapserv
> This script can only be used to decode form results and
> should be initiated as a CGI process via a httpd server.
> [user at host mapserver]$
> So it appears to have performed that action OK.
> Next part, Installation, MapServer Binary is where I am getting stymied.
> "The main goal is to get the "mapserv" binary installed in a publicly accessible directory that is configured to run CGI programs and scripts."
> "Under a default configuration, the CGI directory is "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin" (RedHat users will use "/home/httpd/cgi-bin"). "
> As I am using Fedora (based on rxx hxx) I checked /home/httpd --> no cgi-bin there.
> While my apache install is actually in /usr/local/apache --> cgi-bin is there.
> I have full /root on this sys so can edit apache files as required but don't understand this part.
> Looked through Mail Archive, no solution.
