in thread mkdir through a web interface
You can mod me down for this as you like, but I see an incessantly overuse of modules going on around here. Everybody cries if you don't use CGI... even for something this simple. Ashley is merely printing ONE line to the screen, I hardly feel this requires the use of CGI.pm.. Now I'm not discrediting the use of modules or CGI.pm in general, I just think that sometimes you guys go a little overboard with it. Hell no I'm not going to use CGI to print one line. That's stupid. Not only that but your reply is out of context with the original question. What exactly does CGI do that's going to stop the 500 errors?
And to address Asley's qustion, the simple answer is probably file permissions.. Namely (as stated above) the permissions associated with the parent directory, the one you are attempting to create directories in, needs to be writable by the server.
