in reply to Anyone here familiar with Earthlink Web Hosting? Its running under Apache/Unix

first you should try to run a hello world script such as:

#!/usr/bin/perl
print ("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
print "hello world";


cgi script running problems are almost always one of the following:

  1. the script was not uploaded (ftp) in ascii format
  2. the script isn't marked to execute (using chmod)
  3. the first line of perl in your script is wrong - some web servers put perl in different locations.
  4. you are calling the script wrong - some servers have different calling conventions
