  Subject: real newbie, can't get anything to go
  Posted: 08/22/2006 at 5:34:22 pm

I think I have everything downloaded, and the html code correct, but I am getting absolutely NOTHING to happen when one hits "submit" on my form...

A few of questions..
1)According to my web server, I only need to create a CGI folder under the WWW folder and place the .cgi program there (I also placed all other downloaded files there, too). Do I need to change the first line in the program to that destination, too? Or will the "path to perl" be automatically considered when I place the program under the new CGI folder on the server? (I am using ucvhost as my server).

2) Is it OK that I put all the other files there (i.e. success.htm, error.cgi, etc)

3) in the "action" line of my html, how much of the web address to the bizmail.cgi program do I need to type? Everything (from d:webspace/blahblahblah) or less? The examples seem to say you can start from /www/cgi/etc.. How far back do I need to list?
Again, I am a total newbie at this. Learning how to make these forms, etc, from little website tutorials. Pleas speak plainly and slowly :)

Well, I think I resolved some of this. I finally got the form to submit, but I am getting an error when I do.. The error page says the following:

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:

Can't locate /www/cgi/bizmail2_2/cgi-bin/error.cgi at D:\webspace\july200113\midwayvet\midwayvet.com\www\cgi\bizmail2_2\cgi-bin\bizmail.cgi line 759.

Anyone familiar with this error? I don't know much about this stuff, but it seems to be outside of my webpage HTML, but I'm sure it may have to do with how/where I ftp'd the bizmail folders. For the record, while looking at my directory tree, there is, in fact, a error.cgi file in said folder (...bizmail2_2/cgi-bin/error.cgi).

Any suggestions?

You need to upload error.cgi into the same directory as bizmail.cgi
