Any clues in the apache\logs\error.log file?

Is the cgi-bin part of a virtualhost location?

Where is this cgi-bin located?

The cgi-bin for the DocumentRoot is in C:\xampp\cgi-bin as defined in the httpd.conf file

BTW you can run .cgi files anywhere in the htdocs folder as they don't need to be in a cgi-bin as defined in the httpd.conf file.

Try placing your cgi files directly in the folder of your web site if it is in the htdocs folder.

Your php.ini file is not the issue so no need to send it.

Your problem is where you have your .cgi files located.

So lets assume your web site is in C:\xampp\htdocs and you have a file called script.cgi also in the C:\xampp\htdocs folder then in your browser you would type this:

http://danwer.myftp.org/script.cgi
or
http://localhost/script.cgi

This would serve the script.cgi file.

You see no need for a cgi-bin

Are any of your perl scripts using the .pl file extension?

You did install the perl addon into XAMPP?

Make sure the first line in your script (shebang) is set to the location of the perl addon in XAMPP.
#!"c:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"


BTW your English is 100 percent better than my Pakistani. :)

Your htdocs\cgi-bin folder has to have a cgi script and you should call it from your browser not just
http://danwer.myftp.org/cgi-bin/
but
http://danwer.myftp.org/cgi-bin/script.cgi

I just replicated your issue on my XAMPP installation and got your same 403 error when I did not have a cgi script in the cgi-bin folder.

Remember I said if you get a server 500 error to check the apache\logs\error.log file for more detailed clues?

Your error.log file may be getting large by now and hard to read, so do the following which will help:
1. Stop Apache
2. Open the error.log file in your text editor.
3. Delete all the content so your file is empty.
4. Save the file.
5. Start Apache.
6. Now do the things that are giving you errors.
7. Read the error.log file again, which should be easier now to find the latest errors.
8. Repeat the above if you have a large access.log file.
9. Repeat from time to time if the log files get too big again to read easily.

Paste here the latest errors that are relative to your issue.

Did you install the perl addon for XAMPP and if so where in is it located on your hard drive?

Paste here the very first line of the upload.cgi script.



...and can u tell me what is this problem happening

Code: Select all
http://danwer.myftp.org/videos/cgi-bin/ubr_upload.pl?upload_id=d6f47b8692c6d94fb09b726661cb3588&session=8

As I said before you must check all the paths in your script's configurations are correct and point to the actual paths in your website tree.

What is the web app you are trying to use and I will take a look and see if I can be of more help with it although this is not really an XAMPP issue and should really be asked of the app's author or on their web site.
