Alrighty... I justed moved my wordpress to its own directory, re-activated permalinks and realized my cgi-bin scripts do not work (403 Forbidden error). When I get rid of the permalinks, the cgi-bin scripts work again.
Why would the .htaccess file that WP created be interfering with my cgi-bin? I've done a search and found others with this problem with no definite fix. Help would be much appreciated! There has to be some .htaccess fix for this.
