Help! Desperate PERL Problem (Installation Woes..)
I'm currently running a server with the following specifications...
- Windows 98 SE
- Xitami Web Server Software
Don't mock the server - it preforms suprisingly well.
Anyway, I desperately want (NEED) Perl support for this server, so I installed ActiveState ActivePerl , and the installation went successfully. I've configured Xitami properly (I think) to run it. However, Whenever I try to load a CGI script (regardless of it's extension, and regardless of the script), all I get is a blank white screen. I've uninstalled & reinstalled ActivePerl, with no success.
I'm really in a dire situation here, because I REALLY need this Perl support. So, if you cannot gather any information from this and know anything about Xitami web server and/or might be able to test something to see what's wrong, just give me a shout via;
Email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
or MSN @ email@example.com
and I'll supply you with any information you need to HELP me!
Any help is BEYOND greatly appreciated!
Have you checked the other messages about PERL in Programming and Web Development ?
Yup. There was one ActivePerl thread, which had no information that was at all useful to me. Thanks anyway.
brandon, as far as I know, Perl is a little white bead used for jewelry.
Obviously I can't give you any specific help, but I referred surrealchereal to Experts Exchange regarding her PERL related topic , and I believe she recieved some help from there.
Check the Perl forum under "Web Developers"...
Do you have the Shebang line (which looks something like this: #!/local/bin/perl) set up correctly in your scripts? That's usually how Xitami handles your scripts.
And definitely check to see if perl is installed correctly, as suggested by izzzy.

I know that one way to test is the perl installation is to open a DOS window and type:
this will let you know if it installed ok or not.
