in reply to setting up a localhost

In the httpd.conf file there is this explination

# ServerName allows you to set a host name which is sent back to clien +ts for # your server if it's different than the one the program would get (i. +e., use # "www" instead of the host's real name). # # Note: You cannot just invent host names and hope they work. The name + you # define here must be a valid DNS name for your host. If you don't und +erstand # this, ask your network administrator. # If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP addres +s here. # You will have to access it by its address (e.g., http://123.45.67.89 +/) # anyway, and this will make redirections work in a sensible way. # # 127.0.0.1 is the TCP/IP local loop-back address, often named localho +st. Your # machine always knows itself by this address. If you use Apache stric +tly for # local testing and development, you may use 127.0.0.1 as the server n +ame. # ServerName myservername
This will allow me to call http://localhost or http://myservername in the URL

In the same file you also need to make sure that your cgi-bin settings are correct..

# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scri +pts. # ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that # documents in the realname directory are treated as applications +and # run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent t +o the client. # The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directive +s as to # Alias. # ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/My +Documents/myweb/cgi-bin/" # # "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/cgi-bin" should be changed + to whatever your ScriptAliased # CGI directory exists, if you have that configured. # <Directory "C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/My Documents/m +yweb/cgi-bin"> AllowOverride None Options None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
Your cgi script shoud go in this dir. On the windows platform make sure you have the #!perl.exe line as the first line of your script, and that perl.exe is in your path.
