in thread is it ok to have a web app install alongside http accessible instead of cgi-bin?
It is easier to monitor an app when it resides
in its own directory; it is easier to insert simple
handles, and it is easier to extract info from log
files (and also easier to write such info in
separate file with env=xxx conditions). As for
security, it easier to check and monitor access
permitions. (As per Apache security_tips docs, placing an
app inside server configuration directories is the
least desirable option.)
