Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI Scripts not Working
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2005 02:37:01 GMT
HI -
    It looks like you're using a windows machine for your server. What
the message seems to mean (to me at least) is that apache is looking in
C:\program files\apache group\apache2\ for your cgi file simplets.pl.
Check to see if it's really where apache thinks it should be.
    Then make sure perl is enabled in apache. (check the docs - I'm not
sure about the windows version - I use FreeBSD).
Beyond this, does the directory need to be shared? Is your AliasScripts
in httpd.conf (or whatever the windows version uses) pointed at the
correct directory?
That's all I can think of just now.
Best'o'luck
Gene
