Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI on Apache 2.2
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2008 17:48:35 GMT
Hi Sander;

there are the two lines that I get from the error.log file

[Wed Nov 12 12:21:44 2008] [error] [client] (OS 3)The system cannot find the
path specified.  : couldn't create child process: 720003: index.cgi
[Wed Nov 12 12:21:44 2008] [error] [client] (OS 3)The system cannot find the
path specified.  : couldn't spawn child process: C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs/bugzilla/index.cgi

I do have perl loaded

I have associated the perl interpreter with cgi, I used these instructions to setup and configure
Apache and to no avail!

and then gives the url for the file.

Rather than paraphrasing, feel free to copy and paste the relevant lines directly into your

Associate the .cgi filename extension with your Perl interpreter?  You do have Perl installed,
