Yes, it is apache.  But ScriptAlias doesn't work (seems to be forbidden in .htaccess files).  This is from

[Thu Nov 09 10:27:43 2006] [alert] [client w.x.y.z] /home/www/starship/crew/theller/.htaccess: ScriptAlias not allowed here

Now I've tried RewriteRule:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^mywiki(.*)$ mywiki.cgi$1

This mostly works (http://.../mywiki or http://.../mywiki/Frontpage), but the hyperlinks that the wiki
itself generates still point to "http://.../mywiki.cgi/Frontpage" which I find not so nice.
Of course the urls are only rewritten in one direction...
