in reply to infinite series

Hiiee! How do you post seperate questions in this forum? Any how, here's my question... I’m a VERY new beginner. I have Perl and Apache on my computer. I want to start testing CGI scripts for my website, but I don’t know where to go from here. In order to get Apache to run a CGI script I was told to add ExecCGI to the “Options” line in the httpd.conf file. I added it, then I made a script called, simple.cgi. I tested the script in IE at the address, but I got the “Connection Refused” window. Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong? Thanks for your time, Jenny
