Security Alert! PHP CGI cannot be accessed directly. 
This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled. This means that a 
page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI variable is set. This variable 
is set, for example, by Apache's Action directive redirect. 

You may disable this restriction by recompiling the PHP binary with the 
--disable-force-cgi-redirect switch. If you do this and you have your PHP CGI binary 
accessible somewhere in your web tree, people will be able to circumvent .htaccess 
security by loading files through the PHP parser. A good way around this is to define 
doc_root in your php.ini file to something other than your top-level DOCUMENT_ROOT. 
This way you can separate the part of your web space which uses PHP from the normal 
part using .htaccess security. If you do not have any .htaccess restrictions anywhere 
on your site you can leave doc_root undefined. If you are running IIS, you may safely 
set cgi.force_redirect=0 in php.ini.
