in reply to http server problems

Not a perl question, but....
Well, there was this same question a few days ago, you could try looking around, but anyway, before you can get an answer about why your http server don't run cgi scripts we should need to know,
Get that info back and then we can help you.

    The question was mine yesterday. I tried the suggestions but am back for more help. I am running the Apache Http sever under windows.xp. So far I have just tried a simple "Hello World" script. #!/usr/bin/perl print "Content-type:text/html"; print "<html><head><title>Test Page</title></head>"; print "<body>\n"; print "

    Hello, world!

    \n"; print "</body></html>\n"; it is a .pl file in my cgi-bin directory. When I load this page through a web browser, it diplays the shebang line and the print commands and the \n's I have change the options, the addhandler and the scriptalias

      You probably want to put a <code> </code> around your code in the first instance ;-}

      Also you will need to read in the Apache Documentation with reference to the ExecCGI option. It is also important with Apache that you have the shebang line correct ...

      If you are still having difficulties you will probably want to find Some Apache specific forum to ask the question
