Well, that's tough :-). No need to shame, we all started once.

If that's your Redhat System, you may find the webserver Apache installed somewhere (maybe in /usr/local/apache, maybe elsewhere). CGI provides an interface for that webserver to run a script and output its result. Apache is configured via a file named httpd.conf. Within this file a directory needs to be configured as (example):

<Directory "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin"> AllowOverride AuthConfig Order allow,deny Allow from all Options +ExecCGI ### this is the relevant piece </Directory> ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/"

So you place your script in that cgi-bin directory and open a web browser with the URL:


The output will show your server stats.

If that's not your own system, please ask the question "Where can I place my CGI scripts?" to your webmaster. She will help you.

Perhaps someone redhat compatible can give some better directions to start.
