I've just started learning Perl...this is what I want to do...
I have a page with 2 fields - username and password. I want to write a script that will parse this information, and validate it against the data in a SQL server database. I'm thinking I'll have to set up an ODBC connection, and then use SQl queries.
Also, I'm working on an NT environment. I've installed ActivePerl and Apache. But how do I configure the server to run my scripts? Where do I store the scripts? And, in the submission form, how do I specify where to find the script (is it just action="localhost:80/file_name.cgi"?)
as you can see, I need a lot of help,
