            Re: it cannot be installed on redhat-7.2
            It seems you've done a confusion between Wcal and another Web Calendar software because those message is not displayed by the Wcal installation script.

            Check out your download and contact the right maintainer.

            it cannot be installed on redhat-7.2
            Whatever i've tried on redhat 7.2 it shows:

            WebCalendar Installation Log

            Please configure your webserver to use the following CGI directories

            Server=web.[...].net, cgidir=/var/www/bin/wcal

            Server=web.[...].net, cgidir=/var/www/bin/wcal cginame=/bin/wcal/

            if it requires hacking - why not document such hacks? At least, if is broken the manual way hould work if it would be documented.
