I tried to run a oscommerce autoinstall php file
and I recieved an error that it works only from php 5.2
I looked in my hosts admin and there we have this info under general tab:

The Common Gateway Interface is a way of connecting your web pages to other programs that are running on the server which visitors wouldn’t normally have access to. Most corporate web sites on the Internet today make use of CGI programs or scripts to allow their visitors to browse online catalogues or keep track of their orders in real time.
You have an ability to use CGI scripts on your website. The subdirectory "webspace/cgi-bin" located in your home directory is intended for storing your cgi files. Before testing that CGI really works, devote a couple of minutes to read the information you might find necessary. Paths and Versions: Perl Version 5.8.1. Path to Perl /usr/bin/perl GID 48 Supported Extensions .pl, .cgi Python Version 2.2.3 Path to Python /usr/bin/python Supported Extension .py Path to Sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail Operating System RedHat Linux CGI Directory /cgi-bin/ The URL to your CGIs is as follows: http://domainname/cgi-bin/cgi-script Replace the “domainname” with the real name of your domain and “cgi-script” with the script name. Here are some tips for you to bear in mind when using CGI: • Perl-scripts being transferred via FTP should be in “ASCII” code, not in “binary”. • All scripts are executed only in cgi-bin directory. • After uploading cgi-script change its permission to 755 (rwxr-xr-x). You can use an FTP client to do it. Test: http://www.s-24.ccccloud.com/cgi-bin/test.cgi
