We run the latest version of perl, currently version 5.04
Where is perl located on your servers?
Perl is located in /usr/local/bin
You will need to know this inorder to setup any cgi scripts that you wish
to run on your site.
Do I have to put my cgi scripts in any particular directory within my site?
No, you can run your scripts from any directory within your website other than cgi-bin. cgi-bin is
reserved for the scripts that we provide you and if you create a cgi-bin directory within your site, your scripts will not be found.
What extension do my scripts have to be.
You scripts should have the
extension of .cgi in order for our servers to execute them.
My scripts won't run, they just display as text files or give me an error.
One of the most common reasons that a cgi script won't operate is that
it has been uploaded to the server as binary instead of ascii or you have not set the permisions correctly. The correct executable permissions for a script to execute on our servers is 755.
Where can I get more information on Perl and cgi scripts.
A really good place to get information on the Perl language is located at
