Discovering the Public Cloud

MapServer is a platform for publishing spatial data and interactive mapping applications to the web.

In our example, we use the SSH access and consider the following information:

  • Account name: foo
  • MapServer installation directory: $HOME/mapserver
  1. Create the soft link:
foo@ssh:~/mapserver$ ln -s /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mapserv mapserv
  1. Create a .htaccess file with:
Options +ExecCGI
SetHandler cgi-script
