can't run perl script

Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

can't run perl script

Postby no_bogeys » 04. February 2009 23:58

I have downloaded and installed XAMPP for Mac OS X. I am running 10.5.6. I can start all the components fine.

So now I have created a page in /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs that calls on a perl script located in /Applications/xampp/cgi-bin/ The script just simply takes info from a form and writes it into a text file that is located in /Applications/xampp/htdocs/database.txt The first line of my perl script is #!/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/perl When I try to submit the form, the browser only displays the text of the form rather than executing it.

I have searched this forum and several others but have not found a solution to the problem. Is there anyone out there who might know what I've done wrong?

Many Thanks
