Please visit http://126.96.36.199:33336/cgi-bin/COP4342.
Your assignment is to recreate the same sort of site on the machine 188.8.131.52.
Please use the following scheme for your port number: from the attendance roster, note which number is beside your name. Add 38000 to that number; for instance, if the number beside your name was 59, you would put your server on port 38059, and would access your service as http://184.108.40.206:38059/cgi-bin/COP4342.
You should create two BASH scripts to do this: a script called "~/bin/start-server", and a script called "~/cgi-bin/COP4342".
In your start-server script, please use busybox's built-in webserver. You can access this functionality by creating a soft-link in ~/bin to /bin/busybox.
I would suggest that your start-server script first try to kill any existing httpd processes using pkill. I would then suggest building a new run directory named "html" each time (I would do a "rm -rf ~/html" first, and then create it anew.) I would then copy the entire ~/cgi-bin into your new ~/html directory.

In your COP4342 script, this should be a simple Bash file that sends as output:
Content-type: text/html <html> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5"> <title>Fortunes</title> <body> <pre> [[[ output from fortune piped to cowsay ]]] </pre> </html>
The area in [[[ ]]] is not literal; instead, this should be invocation of the program /usr/games/fortune piped to /usr/games/cowsay.
Embellishment: yes, you may embellish your output; for instance, you could have your cow move to different areas of the screen, or use figlets. There are literally a host of ideas here.
Submission: Please tar up your ~/bin/ and ~/cgi-bin/ directories and submit the tar file on Blackboard.
