Run your script again and see if anything appears in the error log.

Maybe it takes a while to turn on. Right now I think my log is empty.

Do you recommend an FTP client?

I'm using ClassicFTP and I don't see a set permissions option for files.

If you right click the perl script, does a menu come up, if so, it may say permissions, or permissions might be under properties or options etc. I use FireFTP from Mozilla Firefox.

Hey I've got an idea. Can I host and run a perl file locally on my hard drive?

I see this line at the beginning of my file. Could I change it to something else and test perl locally?

#!/usr/bin/perl

Ok right on, I just logged in using Firefox.

I see my file, script.pl. I just right clicked and all I have is properties which doesn't tell me much of anything.

I'm going to go get that FTP program you use and try that.

Its just a Firefox "add on", click tools, add-ons, and search for Fire FTP (unless you already knew this). Its a very nice clean FTP client. I'm unsure that this is going to help solve your problem, after reading about others issues with Perl and GoDaddy [:D].

Pirate I think I'm going to cry

http://fireftp.mozdev.org/

FireFTP is not compatible with Firefox 3.0.19

Ah well, maybe it wouldn't have helped.

Hah, thats an oldish Firefox! I assume you are using XP?. This thread is starting to get quite big, with multiple issues coming into play. If you wanted to get my email, send me a private message, and if you wanted continuous support in solving your issues we could talk via that.

In regards to testing perl locally, you would need perl i.e. ActivePerl installed on your machine.

Bumping this post up for a final time.

For anyone who was interested in the final solution, the O/P fixed his issue of running a perl script using GoDaddy by simply ensuring that he was uploading the script in ASCII format, and permissions set to 755. This advice was given way back in the thread, but the O/P was unable to ensure these settings via his old FTP client, which he has now upgraded to FireFTP.
