    I'm trying to make my .pl and .cgi scripts display as tho they were text files,
    rather than executing. This is the code I'm using but it doesn't work. :confused:

    Code:
    RemoveType .cgi .pl
    RemoveHandler .cgi .pl
    AddType text/plain .cgi .pl
    AddHandler text/plain .cgi .pl

    Try removing the four lines you have and just using the following

    Code:
     
    <FilesMatch "\.(cgi|pl)$">
    ForceType text/plain
    SetHandler text/plain
    </FilesMatch>
    
    ForceType isn't supported by all hosts, which is why we back it up with a SetHandler. The FilesMatch applies this to files only with extensions .cgi or .pl
