Yes so was I :) You have come late to the party and probably missed the background.

The HTML says href="mobile.css" so he isn't deliberately looking in CGI-BIN or making reference to it. Apache is doing that (due to other directives in the config) so his question is:
"why, when I reference 'mobile.css' in my HTML, does Apache try to look in '/cgi-bin/mobile.css'.

It is because the current location at the time is "cgi-bin"....so he just needs to change href="mobile.css" to href="/mobile.css" OR, as you suggested, put it in a css specific subfolder and refer to that with a leading "/" instead.

I was referring to this:

GET http://192.168.50.6:8017/cgi-bin/mobile.css [HTTP/1.1 404 Not
Found 10ms]

That's the problem with copying things and not taking the time to learn how things work. I think my first eRPG book is only a few bucks now. There's a lot of good material in there for beginning to learn CGI. Just ignore the CERN webserver stuff. :) Yes, it's that old..

treating "mobile.css" as being in cgi-bin. I tried to explain that in my
previous post.

You sholdn't be looking in cgi-bin for CSS. That's for CGI applications.

Put your CSS back in /www/articles/htdocs/css

Then reference your CSS using href="/css/mobile.css"

Hi



I try to clarify all



1) In my first post I said that the folder structure in IFS was :

www

..articles

...CSS

.....mobile.css

...htdocs

.....mobileorder.html

And that in my html, I had : <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/articles/CSS/mobile.css">



2) Then after Booth Martin suggestion i moved mobile.css in htdocs
and
modified html to <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="mobile.css">

3) After the point 2, I said that:

"After your suggestion, now in preview it works, but when I run it
in the browser in see this error :
" <http://192.168.xx.z:Myport/cgi-bin/mobile.css>
http://192.168.xx.z:Myport/cgi-bin/mobile.css HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
5ms "



Note "/cgi-bin/mobile.css" , it seems that when look for mobile.css, it
use the "ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /QSYS.LIB/ARTICLES.LIB/" HTTP
directive and pheraps it search in /QSYS.LIB/ARTICLES.LIB ?



So, NOW I have this scenario



folder structure in IFS:

www

..articles

...CSS

...htdocs

.....mobile.css

.....mobileorder.html



And in the HTML <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="mobile.css">



My DocumentRoot is /www/articles/htdocs



These the Apache directive

<Directory />

Order Deny,Allow

Deny From all

</Directory>

<Directory /QSYS.LIB/ARTICLES.LIB>

Order Allow,Deny

Allow From all

</Directory>

<Directory /www/articles/htdocs>

Order Allow,Deny

Allow From all

</Directory>

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /QSYS.LIB/ARTICLES.LIB/

Alias /articles/ /articles/



And if I use Firefox developer tool , in the console I see

GET http://192.168.50.6:8017/cgi-bin/mobile.css [HTTP/1.1 404
Not
Found 10ms]



Sorry for the confusion, now I hope is clearer

Thanks all
