I have apache server installed locally on my system. I have made a directory C:mywebsites as my public_web directory. The files and folders in this directory are accessible from web-browser but the cgi-bin directory is not accessible.

The cgi-bin directory is in C:mywebsites. How should I solve this problem.

Making a guess as we dont have your config file,

You must be having something like

       <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin"> // or something similar in the config file 
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
        </Directory>

change it to all granted instead of Order allow, deny

I would say just look at the config file and you should be able to make a guess.
