Livecode server at Dreamhost

Fiddling with things I finally found a solution. 

In case someone is interested, the new setup is (The numbers in brackets show permissions):

|- cgi-bin (775)
   |- .htaccess (644)
   |- test.lc (644)
   |- livecode-community-server.cgi (775)
   |- drivers (755)
       |- ... (664)
   |- externals (775)
       |- ... (664)

The .htaccess now contains:

AddHandler livecode-script .lc
Action livecode-script /cgi-bin/livecode-community-server.cgi

Now http://mydomain.com/cgi-bin/test.lc returns the right output of test.lc
This works with livecode-community-server 7.0.5

I didn't try every combination, but it seems I had to change three things:

1. Put a ".cgi" after the engines name, change the .htaccess file accordingly.
2. Put the script test.lc into the cgi-bin folder.
3. Drop the first line of the .htaccess file


Is it necessary to put the script into the cgi-bin folder? How can you put it into another folder to avoid clutter?
I wonder ...
