19.9. mod_cgi

The mod_cgi module provides for execution of CGI scripts, including the handling of environment variables and logging. When a CGI script is started, this module creates an environment variable called DOCUMENT_ROOT that mimics the DocumentRoot directive. It also sets the REMOTE_HOST, REMOTE_IDENT, and REMOTE_USER environment variables if appropriate.
