in reply to system call in cgi/perl script on linux

This has to do with the security environment of the webserver. Your perl script running as cgi in the webserver may (and should!) have less access to the machine resources than a command-line shell. You need to research the web server and CGI configuration of the webserver in order to get your CGI to work. Tell us the webserver name and version, operating system, etc and more pointed suggestions can be made to help you.
