OK - Someone please help me before I throw this stupid machine out the window :)
AAargh! Please help me :)
I am trying to get some perl script running on a local machine via the cgi-bin of my web server. All i get, though, is either, a) a very slowly moving progress bar, b) a 'save this file to disk' dialog or c) a CGI time-out error. Oh yeah and sometimes I get a 'read permissions error' too !
This is my set-up:
Installed PWS 4.0 straight off the MS Win98 SE CD
Downloaded and installed ActivePerl-126.96.36.1993-MSWin32-x86-multi-thread.msi from www.activestate.com
Made ammendments to the 'Script Map' section of the registry (.cgi "C:\Perl\bin\Perl.exe %s %s", .pl "C:\Perl\bin\Perl.exe %s %s")
Created an Explorer file-association (.pl, C:\PERL\BIN\PERL.EXE "%1" %*)
Set the permissions with PWS on the folders ( wwwroot is set to read execute scripts and wwwroot/cgi-bin is set to execute)
Added the Perl path to AUTOEXEC.BAT (SET PATH=C:\Perl\bin;%PATH%)
I'm positive all this is set up exactly as it is on my home machine and that runs fine?!!!
I'm running Windows 98 SE
If anyone can spot the deliberate mistake (...) I'll love them forever :)
