Re: Perl beginner - I need help please

I've been searching all day for a free webhoster that provides CGI, SSI, FTP and sendmail, but I gave up. Seems that you have to combine the netfirms and the prohosting account. I'm going to use the prohosting account for my photo gallery, since there's more space and no real need for email. Even better if the URL helped you, too.
Concerning the file permissions, I'd rather trust the provider than the script author. The script author isn't wrong, but he cannot know how your server is configured. The guys at prohosting should know it.
What is the Server Location? I know what URL Location is, but not Server.The server location is, well, simply the location of that file on the server. I guess this will not actually help you...
To clarify this, think of your own computer, where you have installed Apache (I think you have). There's a directory on your harddisk where you put the files that you can access by typing a URL like http://localhost/jenny.html. Let's say that jenny.html is located in c:\webserver\www\jenny.html. Then the red one is the URL and the green one is the Server Location. That was hard to explain, I hope you got it.
Since most webservers are currently running some sort of UNIX, the directory you have been assigned is most likely to be located somewhere in the /home directory.
Anyway, I don't think you actually need the server locations. I guess you can also use relative locations instead. Which means, if your CGI-files are in /home/some/where/cgi-bin/ and the HTML files are in /home/some/where/, you don't have to use /home/some/where/listings.html, but can also use ../listings.html.
Some providers don't allow relative addressing, but many do allow it. Don't care about the absolute server location unless you need it.
Also, when viewed, the .cgi scripts the Guestbook zip file supplied me with were all jumbled. For example, the whole script was just bunched up into a clump.I don't think you have to post the file, I can imagine why they looked that way. I'd guess these files we're in UNIX format, and you tried to open them with Notepad. If this was (more or less) the case, try to open such a file with WordPad. If it looks normal then, my thought was right, and you don't have to attach a file.
Whatís the most populated city in Germany? How many people live there?It's definetely not Hannover, although it's quite a big city (they have half a million citizens). The most populated cities are Berlin (3.4 million) and Hamburg (1.6 million). I live in Gšrtringen, which is in the south-west of Germany, quite close to France. We've got less than 5000 people living here.
I love digital cameras, but theyíre so expensive. When they get down to my price range then Iíll have to think about picking one up, but that wonít be for a while.Yes, they're nice toys, and yes they're expensive. But they still can't reach the quality of my 'analogue' (or as a friend of mine would call it 'chemical') cameras. Do you have a normal camera?
The $40 are a fair price I think. A similar connection in Germany is slightly more expensive. Currently, I have to pay less than one cent per minute, which is ok for me since I have internet access at work and only need it when I'm at home. Normally my phone bill (including internet) is less than $20.
