How do auto run a script ...

#1
Hello

I have a sub-domain, secure.mydomain.com and under this I have a script in the cgi-bin called login.pl

To run this script in my browser I currently go https://secure.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/login.pl
I have the SSL cert installed already.

I want to just go secure.mydomain.com in my browser and have it automatically:

1. Redirect to https
2. Run the script in cgi-bin without me having to fully qualify the path to the script

Anyone know how I can set this.

Thanks

Depending on the server configuration you may try to either:

- use .htaccess to redirect requests:
RedirectMatch permanent ^/$ https://secure.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/login.pl

- create index.html file in the secure.mydomain.com domain's home directory:

<html>
<head>
<meta content="0; url="https://secure.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/login.pl" http-equiv="refresh">
</head>
</html
