Perl for Win2000
i'm going to assume that you're using IIS on windows 2000, and ActiveState Perl here's what u need to check on the web server :
a) open IIS, right-click the web site which you're programming the Perl script for, and select "Properties"
b)Click the "Home Directory"
c)Click the "Configuration" button", and then "ADD"
d)in the resultant form which appears, choose the path to the PerlIIS.dll file which will be in , for example, c:\Perl\bin\PerlIIS.dll
e) write ".cgi" in the "Extensions" input field
f)Enter "PUT,DELETE" in the "Method Exclusions" input field (this field can also be left blank, since it is optional)
Make sure that the "Script Engine" checkbox is checked (the other checkbox "Check that file exists" is optional)
g)Lastly, stop and start the webserver for the changes to take effect (this is not a rule, but is recommended)
h) Take a deep breath (mandatory), mutter a small prayer (optional), and try executing the file again...
hope this helps :)
