Using Pre-installed CGI Scripts
Owners of Unix accounts can use simple CGI wizards to enhance their sites with the following scripts:
All CGI scripts for a particular site are stored in the cgi-bin
directory, unless specified otherwise. If you accidentally delete any
files in the cgi-bin directory, you can recover them by going
to the Web Options page and clicking the Restore to default
link. Your existing files remain untouched, so you will not lose your
changes. To get rid of undesirable changes in the script files, delete
these files and then click the Restore to default link on the Web
Options page. Also, use the Restore to default link to fix
your temporary index page to default.
See the Contents of Your Home Directory chapter of this manual for more information on the files and catalogues not to be deleted.

If you are running a Unix-based account, you can enhance your site with mnoGoSearch (disclaimer), a utility that searches your site by keywords.
mnoGoSearch script file is stored in the cgi-bin directory, but its configuration files are located in the mnoGoSearch/ directory in your root.
To enable mnoGoSearch, do the following:
WARNING: Assigning a previously created MySQL database to be used for mnoGoSearch needs, you will remove contents of all its tables.
To make it available to the Internet users, put a link to your mnoGoSearch
page on your site's pages.
* Note: It will take some time to index your site pages and get your search working.
You can extend your mnoGoSearch capabilities (e.g.: set local charset)
by editing file indexer.conf. To learn how to work with indexer.conf,
refer to indexer.conf-dist which can be found in the /'account'/mnogosearch/'domain'/
* If you mishandle anything, you can always restore mnoGoSearch configuration to the default by clicking the Edit icon, but all your custom settings will be lost.
