Re: [PBML] how can i get this to work on tripod.com
- Not much help for me but have found this
The URL of any file located in your cgi-bin is:
The absolute system location of files in your cgi-bin is the same as
the root directory. While a CGI script is running, Tripod's CGI
server considers your cgi-bin to be the root directory. The system
location of a file in your cgi-bin would be the file name, since the
CGI server doesn't see the rest of the directory path. A file
named "guestbook.html" in your cgi-bin would have "guestbook.html" as
the system-path name.
Tripod's CGI server assumes that any file with a .pl or .cgi file
extension has executable permissions. This means you do not have to
change any script permissions. Since Tripod does not allow Telnet
access, you wouldn't be able to change permissions anyway.
Tripod supports version 5.0 of Perl
one interesting thing do i need perl on the webite or should it work
with out it.I was assuming that everthing was good to go with just as
CGI script in the cgi-bin
There is no were directly i can ask question on tripod. and i cant
find anything that shows how to set it up on tripod exaclty plse
