Thanks, I will definitely be using a different server for testing.
Although it seems to me there is only need for one CGI program for each
server instance. This would be able to set up the library list and call the
appropriate application program depending on the CGI environment variables.

I need to configure the server so that that the external party can

I've seen examples where a ScriptAlias is simply added to the server
configuration in order to simply call the test program (change library
lists, etc).
It's also been suggested to use activation groups but that would need a
lot more work to make sure everything is running only in that activation
I don't like the fact that the calls to the production program and the
test program would therefore use the same CGI job, if I understand
correctly. I've seen that sometimes there are several CGI jobs running with
the same name instead of one, I don't know how that works.
Is there any reason I shouldn't just duplicate my server instance and use
this only for testing purposes?
