Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On OpenSUSE 12.2

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with
nginx on OpenSUSE 12.2. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there
are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the
first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server
that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to
serve CGI scripts.
