You need to remember that the CGI script is run with the uid of the apache, not as yourself. You will need to make sure that the cisco log is accessible to the apache user id (normally httpd, apache, etc).

Save the following script to the cgi-bin directory of your webserver as view_cisco_log.cgi, and modify the path to point to the actual location of the cisco log on your machine.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI; use IO::File; my $f = new IO::File "/opt/cisco/cisco.log", "r" or die; my $cgi = new CGI; print $cgi->header, "<HTML><TITLE>CISCO LOG</TITLE><BODY><PRE>"; while (defined (my $line = <$f>)) { $line =~ s/&/&amp;/g; $line =~ s/</&lt;/g; $line =~ s/>/&gt;/g; print $line } print "</PRE></BODY></HTML>";
And create a link on your webpage to point to the following location: So that when a user clicks on the link, he/she will invoke the CGI script and see the cisco log.

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.
