    CGI friendly webserver

    hey...I'm not one to participate in forums a lot but I need some help. I'm looking for a web host that will let me upload cgi files written in c++. I've found a lot that let me upload files written in pearl but that's the problem...I haven't found one that will run files written in c++. I also prefer a free web host, but please mention any web hosting service that you know of that runs c++ cgi scripts.

    Thanks a lot.

    They're not scripts if they're compiled are they? :-)

    You'll probably have to look closely at each one:

    But now days, no-one writes websites in C/C++. And usually people don't want to host such capability...

    Post your CGI C++ program, and see if we can poke some security holes in it.

    The last time someone tried this, it took about 5 seconds to spot problems so large you could drive a truck through it.

    Now imagine you're a hosting provider, offering a free service (aka, not a lot of money to mess about repairing the system because of flaky customer CGI programs).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
