What do I need to do to get my Perl / ASP / PHP script to work ?




Before mosts script will run on a hosting server, it has to be uploaded into your /cgi-bin/ directory (in ASCII mode unless encoded) and made executable (CHMOD 755).

You may also need to set the correct extension on the file:

  • Perl files need to have the extension .pl or .cgi 1st line must read #!/usr/bin/perl
  • Debug Perl files need to have the extension .pld or .cgid
  • ASP files need to have the extension .asp
  • PHP files need to have the extension .php
  • iHTML files need to have the extension .ihtml

We recommend that each script is placed in it's own sub-directory within /cgi-bin/
