I answered this question: CGI-Bin does not seem to be set up and today I found this question: how to set up cgi-bin directories for virtual host set up?

I suggested to use that answer and OP said that it work.

Now I tried to flag as duplicate, but I can't, because that answer is neither accepted nor upvoted.

So I wonder what I should do. Should I answer this new question, hope that this new answer is accepted and than flag the old one as duplicate?

  • Thanks to those who upvoted, I was able to flag as duplicate the question.
