What is CGI file?

The .CGI extension stands for the Common Gateway Interface  file format which is marked as a standard approach to generate web applications and dynamic content on the Web pages. The .CGI extension, when applied on a Web server provides the user with an interface between the applications and web server that generates the Web site content. All such programs are called as the CGIs or as CGI scripts. These files are generally written using a scripting language.

.CGI extension is more of a programming language and the files that are created using this language end up in the .CGI file format extension. Several other file formats may also be using the .CGI extension.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the CGI file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the CGI file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the CGI file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the CGI file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the CGI file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the CGI file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
