Your CGI Values


Question: What kind of information does my browser provide your site?

Answer:Your browser provides any website that you visit Common Gateway Interface (CGI) values and any information that are in cookies and form values. McClainSolutions.com does not use cookies because of several browser limiations. Form values are the information you put into any form. Your CGI values are the follow




AUTH_TYPE

No information available

Authentication method if authentication is supported and used, usually null or Basic

The AUTH_TYPE variable identifies any mechanism used by the server to authenticate the user. It contains a case-insensitive value defined by the client protocol or server implementation.

For HTTP, if the client request required authentication for external access, then the server MUST set the value of this variable from the 'auth-scheme' token in the request Authorization header field.



CONTENT_LENGTH

0

The CONTENT_LENGTH variable contains the size of the message-body attached to the request, if any, in decimal number of octets. If no data is attached, then NULL (or unset).



CONTENT_TYPE

No information available

If a request includes a message-body, the CONTENT_TYPE variable is set to the Internet Media Type of the message-body.



GATEWAY_INTERFACE

This is server information so it is hidden from public viewing

The CGI specification revision in use.

The GATEWAY_INTERFACE variable MUST be set to the dialect of CGI being used by the server to communicate with the script.



HTTP_ACCEPT

text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8

The MIME types that the client will accept.



HTTP_ACCEPT_CHARSET

No information available

ID of the client browser ISO character set in use.



HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING

x-gzip, gzip, deflate

List of types of encoded data that the browser will accept.



HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE

No information available

The type of human languages that the client will accept.



HTTP_CACHE_CONTROL

No information available

The type of cache control that the client is using.



HTTP_CONNECTION

No information available

The most common protocol in use between client browsers and Web servers. This architectural element represents a connectionless type of communication between client and server.



HTTP_COOKIE

No information available

The cookie sent by the client or a packet of information sent by a server to a World Wide Web browser and then returned by the browser each time it accesses that server, used to maintain state between otherwise stateless HTTP transactions, for example, to identify the user.



HTTP_HOST

mcclainsolutions.com

The main site address in the browser or HTTP host name, as sent by the client.



HTTP_REFERER

No information available

The URL of the referer or last page.



HTTP_USER_AGENT

CCBot/2.0 (http://commoncrawl.org/faq/)

The browser identifier of the client. This is the mostly used information for any site because the values define how you view the site.



PATH_INFO

No information available

Requested file path information (as provided by the client)

The PATH_INFO variable specifies a path to be interpreted by the CGI script. It identifies the resource or sub-resource to be returned by the CGI script, and is derived from the portion of the URI path hierarchy following the part that identifies the script itself. Unlike a URI path, the PATH_INFO is not URL-encoded, and cannot contain path-segment parameters.



PATH_TRANSLATED

This is server information so it is hidden from public viewing

The PATH_TRANSLATED variable is derived by taking the PATH_INFO value, parsing it as a local URI in its own right, and performing any virtual-to-physical translation appropriate to map it onto the server's document repository structure. The set of characters permitted in the result is system-defined.



QUERY_STRING

No information available

FORM data submitted to the CGI.



REMOTE_ADDR

54.163.61.66

The IP address of the remote host. Simply put; your IP address.

The REMOTE_ADDR variable MUST be set to the network address of the client sending the request to the server.



REMOTE_HOST

54.163.61.66

This is the hostname making the request.

The REMOTE_HOST variable contains the fully qualified domain name of the client sending the request to the server, if available, otherwise NULL. Domain names are not case sensitive.



REMOTE_IDENT

No information available

Simply your remote user identification.

The REMOTE_IDENT variable MAY be used to provide identity information reported about the connection by an RFC 1413 request to the remote agent, if available. The server may choose not to support this feature, or not to request the data for efficiency reasons, or not to return available identity data.



REMOTE_USER

No information available

Authentication method if authentication is supported and used.

The REMOTE_USER variable provides a user identification string supplied by client as part of user authentication.



REQUEST_BODY

No information available

Request body text (used by Apache). The Request Body, as supplied in the REQUEST_BODY meta-variable, identifies the processing information to be applied by the script in producing a response. The script author can choose to assign the information for a particular application.



REQUEST_METHOD

This is server information so it is hidden from public viewing

The Request Method, as supplied in the REQUEST_METHOD meta-variable, identifies the processing method to be applied by the script in producing a response. The script author can choose to implement the methods most appropriate for the particular application.



SCRIPT_NAME

This is server information so it is hidden from public viewing

Logical path of script being executed

The SCRIPT_NAME variable MUST be set to a URI path (not URL-encoded) which could identify the CGI script (rather than the script's output).
