Let’s have a look a the old and simple “cgi-bin” stuff on OpenBSD. The Webserver is written by the OpenBSD Guys, and it runs in a chrooted environment.
switch to cgi-bin dir
create the file under /var/www/cgi-bin called ‘ip.cgi’
cat << 'EOG' > ip.cgi #!/bin/sh cat << EOF Content-type: text/html <html><head> <title>IP: $REMOTE_ADDR</title> </head><body> <p>Your IP address is: $REMOTE_ADDR</p> </body></html> EOF EOG
Set Owner & Permission
chmod 500 ip.cgi chown www ip.cgi
as we have the command “cat” in the Script, we need to have this binary in the chrooted HTTP of OpenBSD as well.
copy Binary & set owner & permission
cp $(which cat) /var/www/bin/ chmod 500 /var/www/bin/cat chown www /var/www/bin/cat
the “cat” command writes it’s data to a /tmp Directory first. So, we need to create this directory if not existing.
mkdir /var/www/tmp chown www /var/www/tmp
enable & restart httpd, slowcgi
rcctl enable httpd slowcgi rcctl restart httpd slowcgi
and we’re done. just open the Browser and surf to your website: https://anycast.stoege.net/cgi-bin/ip.cgi
in case of problems (the /tmp directory for example, was not aware of) just do the follwoing:
rcctl stop httpd httpd -vvvvv && tail -f /var/www/logs/access.lgog
Any Comments ?
