Testing forms Can't Post

Hi there,

I'm writing a script which processes a form on a webpage. I'm testing this all locally, using Activestate Perl and PHP pages.

I have designed my form, and when I go to test the submit part of it, it tries to download the CGI script instead of running it!

Any ideas how I stop this??
Thanks,
JT

It's a problem with the configuration of your web server. You need to configure it to recognise CGI programs correctly.

Any idea how I can do that? Or any pointers to instructions on configuring it correctly?

let's see,
... Activestate perl, and PHP pages ...

Well there is no mention of what webserver you use,
but it don't matter,
the ActiveState faq has a section on that

I did already look there, but went back and had another scan. Found it and configured it fine.
