Welcome to the MetaCollection of CGI and PHP script archives

This site is a guide for webmasters and developers who are in search of CGI or PHP script archives. As a webmaster you will find link directories where you can look for scripts and code snippets that power your interactive dynamic website. As a programmer you will find link directories where you can publish your own software and drive traffic to your website.

There are several script archives on the web who claim to be the world largest directory. However, worlds largest directory or not, quantity is not everything. For webmasters who need a script for their website only quality counts. And for developers who want to promote their script traffic is the key.

This site is an independent project and not affiliated with the script directories. We divided the script archives in three categories: High-Flyers, Average and German script archives. The section 'High-Flyers' contains the largest and most popular script collections. The average script archives are all the others which are not as big as the High-Flyers but nevertheless worth it to look at. And finally for the German market - origin of MetaCollection - the important script archives in that special region.

By the way. You may notice an emphasis on PHP related scripting resources. But feel free to » send us your favourite CGI/Perl script directory.

High-Flyers Average

Big Webmaster

That site provides a collection of around 1.500 webmaster resources such as scripts, tutorials, books and online articles about ASP, C, C++, ColdFusion, Flash, HTML, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Unix Shell, Visual Basic and XML. A very nice feature is the possibility to upload a thumbnail screenshot of the website or software.

CGI/PHP Resource Index

That site comes with the CGI Resource Index with over 5,000 and the PHP Resource Index with over 1,000 links to server side scripts and programs. The CGI Resource Index presents software written in Perl, C, C++, Python, Unix Shell, and Visual Basic. And as the name says the PHP Resource Index contains links to PHP scripts, functions and classes. Started in 1997 is this one of the oldest resources for CGI scripts.

It takes up to a week until a resource is reviewed and added to the index.

Beside the CGI and PHP Resource Index exists a third topic guide - the Web Hosting Resource Index. It provides information and resources to find web space on Unix or Windows web server.


The site contains thousands of links to server and client side software. Those scripts and programs are written in ASP, C, C++, CFML, Flash, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python or XML. All categories are well structured and the layout is usable. Visitors can rate a resource (poor to excellent) and members can write reviews of a resource.

As a developer you will need to register, if you want to add your script or software to the directory. The resources are reviewed within 3-4 working days. Some of the script categories are quite large with over 100 entries.


Like the two websites above ScriptSearch.com is one of the oldest and largest script archives with over 8,000 resources. The directory is organized by programming language such as ASP, CFML, C, C++, Flash, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Python, Visual Basic, and XML. Each of these categories have subfolders with various script categories.

New resources are reviewed within 1-2 working days. They are one of the quickest in the field. Resources with more than 15 clicks per day rank on top of the category and get a 'hot' icon.


Besides a huge amount of ads like banner, text ads, site sponsors, buttons, and sponsored links a visitor will find the usual script directory.


Site with a clean layout and a good deal of categories and subcategories.

Online Appointment Scheduler

Scheduling appointments via telephone or email are standard practices in everyday business and offer the opportunity to automate it.


This online directory is a younger one and therefore quite small. Around 140 Perl resources and almost 170 PHP scripts are listed. Other categories such as ASP, C and C++, Java, JavaScript, or XML have fewer listings than the two above.

CGI Scripts Online

CGI-BIN.com is a Web directory that contains annotated links to web scripting/programming, web development, and webmaster resources. The site offers links to Perl, PHP, Flash, Active Server Pages, Java, Javascript, ColdFusion, and Unix scripts and resources.
