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 http://127.0.0.1/cgi-bin/simple.cgi address, but I got the “Connection Refused” window.
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
