Help, .pl file no longer works after edit
I am editing my friend's website and have edited a .pl file, changing the main image file to have a link attached to it.
I opened the file in dreamweaver and saved it as 'filename'.pl then uploaded it to the server.
DreamWeawer is an HTML editor, not Perl IDE. Perhaps it have broken your file somehow.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Do you have access to the server logs? Shell access? Any backups?
Sorry if my advice was wrong.
