I have been looking around in order to figure out if this is possible.
I have purchased a hosting plan which is a linux platform.
All I can do is to upload files to certain folders. There is no services of any
installation, batch file running, change of Apache config, or envirnmental
variables (path) setting.
In windwos, I can just upload mapserv.exe and all libraries to cgi-bin, and set
Proj path. Then mapserver will work.
I never used Linux, so could anyone please tell me if this is possible:
1: get all the files from FWTools for Linux, and put in the cgi-bin so that
mapserver will work properly? I only need mapserver and its dependencies.
2: I need to work with PostgIS and Proj.
Do I need to change Apache config?
Your help is greatly appreciated. I know others have been facing the same
problem. An answer will help many people.
Have a nice day
