in reply to Perl/CGI/Oracle hangs when connecting

You don't need to use DBD::Oracle, the call to connect takes care of that.

As to why your CGI can't connect, does the user that the web server runs at have permission to access /oracle ?

    I'm not sure...the script is trying to login with the built-in account, or with my own account (i.e., what I'd give SQL*Plus). What other permissions does it need? Matt
      I mean the Unix file system permissions on /oracle might not allow the web server user to read necessary files. When you run it from the command line it probably works because you can read those files but the web server is most likely running as another user who might not have read access.
