in reply to Running a cgi script from index .html

TIMTOWTDI. Do you have SSI available? Enable them for your index.html and use some 'exec cgi' command. Or just make index.html a Perl Program and tell the webserver it is one. Do you have a possibility like mod_rewrite? Just rewrite index.html to whatever script URI you want.

You see, this is more a problem of how to configure your server, not neccesarily a Perl problem. Anyways, I'm sure the Perlmonks can help you if you tell us what webserver you're using.

    I am using Apache server.

      That's good. The documentation is available online ;)

      It's likely that Ovid is right and you cannot configure anything at all, but if you can, I think the following will be configurable as it is no danger for the server.

      # .htaccess file <Files index.html> SetHandler cgi-script </File>

      Now you can simply put a Perl Script in "index.html" and it will work.

      If you only want it to be index.html because it is the directory index, there's a better method:

      DirectoryIndex index.cgi index.pl

      You don't need any index.html now, just create index.cgi (or index.pl if you like) and it will be directory index.
