Error 13

I am new to Perl so this question might sound very stupid...
When I execute the script from the webpage, I get error (13) -- Permission denied.
Can someone please help me?????
I think I have to change the permission on the cgi-bin directory, but don't know what to....
Pleeeease help!!!
Thank you.

Re: Error 13

Hi Olive,

The script you are trying to run has to be set to 755.
Command for this in telnet is
chmod 755 scriptname.cgi
You would replace the scriptname.cgi with the name of the script.
If it is set to 755 and it still says permission denied you need to contact your server admin.

Hope this helps
