The default configuration of SSI Web has a separate cgi-bin directory inside each study root directory. Some web server configurations and ISPs do not allow this. They have a specific location where all CGI scripts must reside in order to execute. The following steps outline how to make SSI Web work with this alternate configuration:

1. Upload all of the SSI Web Perl files (*.pl) to the location where they have permission to execute (the "common cgi-bin").

2. In the authoring interface of SSI Web, go to Field | Remote Survey Management | Server Directory Paths. Modify the default paths to account for the new location of the Perl scripts. The following list describes the Server Directory Paths that need to be modified:

• Administrative Directory: Path from the Perl scripts to the admin directory.
• CGI Scripts Directory: Path from login.html to the Perl scripts.
• Relative Path from CGI Scripts to Graphics: Path from the Perl scripts to the graphics directory.

These changes are stored in the STUDYNAME_path.cgi, login.html, and admin.html files. The notation "../" means go up one directory.

For example, given the directory structure:
```\cgi-bin
ciwweb.pl
STUDYNAME_path.cgi (might need to be placed here)
(etc.)
\htdocs
\study1
