    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
    http://netbula.com/anyboard/manual/install.html
    (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 ?

    When I go there, it gives me a 'page not found' error. Is that the 'elsewhere' you get?
    That URL looks wrong; it should likely read...
    http://www.lukesplace.com/cgi-bin/anyboard.cgi
    (which also returns a page not found)

    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!
    Thanks...
