A server deployed in CGI mode is open
to several possible vulnerabilities. Please read our
CGI security section to learn how to
defend yourself from such attacks.

Some OmniHTTPd packages come with built in PHP support.
You can choose at setup time to do a custom setup, and
uncheck the PHP component. We recommend you to use the latest
PHP binaries. Some OmniHTTPd servers come with PHP 4 beta
distributions, so you should choose not to set up
the built in support, but install your own. If the server
is already on your machine, use the Replace button in Step
4 and 5 to set the new, correct information.
