Add this line to your cgi and try again

use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';
Remove or comment out when script is working.

    Hmm that seems to have worked sort of but it gives me this error:

    Status: 500 Content-type: text/html Software error:

    Cannot open http://www.perl03.georgeself.com/cgi-bin/forms.txt: No such file or directory at helpdesk.cgi line 26.

    For help, please send mail to the webmaster (webmaster@perl03.georgeself.com), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

    I made that file and it does exist so not sure what it is talking about or if I'm doing something wrong?

      The database location $gbdata needs to be a filepath/filename not a URL
      my $gbdata="http://www.perl03.georgeself.com/cgi-bin/forms.txt";

      Also the folder has to be writeable by the web server and normally cgi-bin folders are not for security reasons. If you are just learning/testing then try using the /tmp folder, same as the semaphone.

      my $gbdata = "/tmp/forms.txt";
