Anthony Boyd, Michael Holtz,
This depends on what Operating System you're using. On Windows, Apache
typically installs into the "Program Files" folder on your C drive.
You'll find a folder called "cgi-bin" buried in the Apache folders, and
you should place your CGI programs there.
On Linux/Unix, just try "which apache" or "whereis apache" to get the
path. It will give you something like this:
Then just "cd" into that directory, and type "ls" to see if there is
a "cgi-bin" directory. If so, cd into that and put your files there.
Sometimes the cgi-bin can also be inside the "htdocs" folder, so you
can look for it in there if it's nowhere else. That's a wee bit
insecure for it to be running like that, though. So I hope it's not
set up that way for you. Good luck.
