  • Cgi-bin not showing up in ftp/secure ftp/Windows Explorer

    I followed the steps in this tutorial to set up a cgi-bin that would handle all my perl scripts and in the IIS manager:

    http://www.visualwin.com/Perl/

    In the IIS manager, the directory shows up no problem, but when I try to see the directory in any other program, It doesn't show up.

    I can't see it in Windows Explorer, Secure and regular FTP or anything.

    I'm a total newbie so be kind!

    Thanks,
    Clem C

    Ok - found some tutorials and as far as to creating my cgi-bin virtual directory and pointed to a physical directory. In this case the virtual cgi directory is located in the D:Websites/mywebsite/cgi-bin and the directory it points to is located here: D:Websites/mywebsite/test/perl_scripts.

    When I put a small test page in this dirctory (D:Websites/mywebsite/test/perl_scripts/test.pl) directory and try to view it on the web it says the page cannot be found.

    Here's the perl script I am trying to view:

    Code:
    #!C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe
    
    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
    
    print "test!!!!";

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks for your time!
