OK, I just installed linux and xampp onto it, and all is well, except for the cgi scripts. I have the first line set to #!/opt/lampp/bin/perl, and I tried chmodding the directory to 777, 755, 700, 600, 001, and anything else I could think of. Every time is asked where to download it to, except 700 when it said that permission was denied. What am I doing wrong?
Also, when the script is downloaded, it is empty. Is this a problem with the perl installation?
I just tried downloading activeperl and installing it. Then I set the first line to reflect the location of teh activeperl interpreter, and it still doesn't work. I REALLY need help.
