Which links are you referring to?

I'm looking here, and I don't see any links:

As Jesper mentioned, the CGI scripts are designed to be executed by
the web server.

This page has a bunch of default locations for components of Apache,
which was the default web server in Fedora the last time I checked:


Assuming this is correct, you would want to put upsstats.cgi in
/var/www/cgi-bin (with the execute bits turned on), and search for
that path in /etc/httpd to see if it was just commented out of the
configuration file.
