( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
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

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
