Hello, I am new to perl CGI script writing. I wrote some code that is so simple that it has to work. Aside from the required lines at the top of the page, it's just a simple print statement. It was working but I think I made one of two mistakes:
How to get CGI script to run on host server
Uploaded a copy from windows (server is a different operating system).
Opened the file on the server for editing in the wrong file format (ascii insteatd of some required format).
I don't know how to get it back to normal. The webhost personnel corrected it for me once, but since they don't provide free web development, they told me to consult forums. Can anyone assist me with this problem?
