this cgi infuriates me, is perl the culprit?
Im trying to install this cgi and am soo lost, I've been at it for 2 days now.
the company doesn't respond to my emails so im trying to figure this out
(those are the install instructions which seem simple enough, but I've done it many times and get the same error each time, am I missing something?
(I uploaded all the files but my anyboard.cgi doesnt seem to load like the example) Here's something which is suposed to help me
http://www.lukesplace.com/cgi/getinfo.cgi but for the most part am clueless what the deal is.
I've decided to hate this software and its only a personal thing as to my wanting to figure it out.
If you can explain it to me, I'll give you a buffalo nickel!
What error are your receiving ?
Is it a plain internal server error or does it have more details ?
Thats the thing I don't understand, when I go to the anyboard.cgi
http://www.lukesplace.com/cgi/anyboard.cgi to install it, no error comes up, it just redirects me elsewhere. I think this is supopsed toi help, buut I don't know what its telling me.
When I go there, it gives me a 'page not found' error. Is that the 'elsewhere' you get?

Are you sure things are in the right place.
ie: Your CGI scripts should be in a directory named 'cgi-bin'. Your host will tell you where that directory should reside relative to the webroot. (It can vary from host to host)
that was the problem, they turned on the cgi-bin and everything worked!
