is CGI? (common gateway interface)
Can I run CGI scripts on your server?
Yes! Scripts may be run anywhere in your folder, but remember to
set the file attributes to execute. To do this in FTP, go into
the directory in which the cgi script is located; in your FTP
program locate the command line function, and type in SITE CHMOD
755 filename.cgi where filename.cgi is the name of your cgi
script. If you have a directory called "cgi-bin"
make sure you put an index.html file in there for security
Where is Perl directory?
Perl is located in usr/bin/perl so you would type
#!/usr/bin/perl into the first line of your script.
Can I run both file.cgi and file.pl
If you try and run a script called file.cgi without success, try
naming the script, file.pl and visa versa. Sometimes these
little things make the difference.
What is the true unix path?
domain set-up on our server is also associated with a site
number i.e. site00,
For some reason, scripts like Matts script archive cgi's
sometimes have problems with using
and require the site number.
Find out what your site number is by
downloading this CGI
variables script, save it as path.pl, upload it in
ascii to any folder in your domain and set the permissions to
755. Goto your browser and type

for installing CGI...
