Hiya, Everyone!

Posts: 88
  I often use CGI and PL files on my website but of late they don't seem to execute or function. All that happens is that the file contents itself is displayed just as if I was using Notepad. I've tried re-installing Windows (XP3 Pro) but it doesn't rectify the problem. I've even used the 'open with ...' facility to try to associate PL and CGI files with perl.exe which doesn't fix the problem.

Can anyone shed some light on what has happened?

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version


The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

   After you upload the files to your website, you have to set the file attributes of each file to execute and not just read.  It will be something like 777.
   If you are replacing an existing file when you upload, it usually keeps the old file's attributes and so you don't have to change it.  But if it is a new file, a default file attribute is set and so you must go in and change the attribute to what you want.
