+1 to the above

Remember, PHP doesn't have anything to do with POST'ing to your perl script. The user's browser posts to your perl script. And really, it doesn't even do that; it POST's to a URL. The browser doesn't know anything about PHP or perl, all it knows is that it has some HTML coming in one side, that tells it to send some HTTP stuff to this other URL.

So your problem probably is either (a) the perl script not D'ingTRT as a CGI, or (b) the URL you're putting in not going to it. Or possibly a variant of both as (c) the server not being configured to run external CGI's, either where you put it, or anywhere.

Luckily, they all have the same solution; forget the path you're currently taking to get there (the form), and the current contents of the script (whatever processing on the data). Just replace it with a bog-simple hello-world style script, and fiddle around until you can hit it directly and get the expected output. Then just dropping in the real code and the URL in the form will probably Just Work.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
