    I still wasn't able to get my localhost to work. Here's the cgi script I'm trying to run:
    #!C:\perl\bin\perl.exe -wT use strict; use CGI; my $query = new CGI; print $query->header( "text/html" ); print <<END_HERE; <html> <head> <title>My First CGI Script</title> </head> <body bgcolor="#FFFFCC"> <h1>This is a pretty lame Web page</h1> <p>Who is this Ovid guy, anyway?</p> </body> </html> END_HERE # must have a line after "END_HERE" or Perl won't recognize # the token
    And here is how my configuration file httpd.conf is set up:
    # # ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify +itself. # This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you spe +cify # it explicitly to prevent problems during startup. # # If this is not set to valid DNS name for your host, server-generated # redirections will not work. See also the UseCanonicalName directive +. # # 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 anyway, and this will make + # redirections work in a sensible way. # # rebot.mn.rr.com:80 # 127.0.0.1:80 ServerName 127.0.0.1
    my script alias is also set up the following way:
    # ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts. # 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 to th +e client. # The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directives as + to # Alias. # ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/cgi-bin/" # # "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/cgi-bin" should be changed to + whatever your ScriptAliased # CGI directory exists, if you have that configured. # <Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/cgi-bin"> AllowOverride None Options None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
    I am trying to use 127.0.0.1 to access and run this script. When I type the following script into the browser nothing happens and the browser keeps running and trying to load the page (acts like an infinate loop): http://127.0.0.1/cgi-bin/test.cgi thank you for your suggestion. I just can't get it to work. Does the fact that I'm also using ZoneAlarm and a hub make any difference? I don't know.
      I cut and pasted your cgi and put it into my cgi-bin dir and added a link to my test page and it worked fine. So there is no problem with your cgi (Other than the message I get that it is too late for -T). Also your httpd.conf settings look fine.

      You mentioned that you are using a hub..? Are you connecting to the url from the local machine or across a network..? Also Turn ZoneAlarm off for a bit while you are testing..?

      Let us know what happens..

        AcidHawk,

        I am connecting to the url form my local machine and not across a network so the hub should not matter.

        I was running apache 2.0.48 (the newer version) and I uninstalled that. I installed the older version (1.3....) instead and now everything runs fine and I'm able to get that test file to work!

        I guess Apache 2.0.48 has issues with ZoneAlarm.

        I really appreciate your help.

        Looks like I'm on my way to learning Perl! I'm very excited.

        Again, thanks a lot!

        Take care!
