    It's nice to see that you've made progress since your last request for help. However, this "certificate" that you're attempting to get should reflect your ability to do your own work, not your bargaining skills in convincing others to do your work for you. I understand that time is short. If you have specific questions beyond "can you do this for me so I can get a valuable certificate by submitting your work?" then feel free to ask. You should receive an answer within a timely manner.

    At this point, we can't offer much help since your code is 4 lines long (you're missing a single quote after username, btw). As it stands, it would execute more or less, as long as the script is under users/cc/pr/vaib/1.htm and you add print header(); as the first thing that your script prints.

    For some helpful tutorials, please refer to the following: CGI, getpwnam, crypt, the Perl and CGI FAQ, open, print, and possibly perldoc perlopentut.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm sure 'u' know about how to use the getpwnam() function, which will help 'u' find your Linux account information. As for the rest?

    Looks like you've got a lot of work left to do!

    Congratulations on using though. That can't hurt.

    Update: I do hope that this form is being submitted over HTTPS and not plain HTTP. Otherwise, those who use it will surely be hacked, since their shell password is transmitted as plain-text.
